Karachi: The Pakistan cricket Board was sent into another vortex of tension on Sunday night as the Indian Premier League commissioner Lalit Modi confirmed that a player has tested positive in WADA's random dope test, conducted during the inaugural Indian Premier League tournament.
With the Indian media indicating that the sample belonged to a fast bowler from the sub-continent, the PCB braced itself for another controversy just days after it got over the Mohammad Asif detention case in Dubai.
"Right now we are not in the picture at all. Because this positive test is purely an internal matter of the IPL and the Indian Cricket Board. And so far we have not been told by anyone that any of our player's might be involved," a source at the PCB said.
But already suspicion is being raised that the player whose sample had tested positive might be from Pakistan with Asif having undergone a test in the IPL while playing for the Delhi Daredevils.
"Umar Gul also had a test but Shoaib Akhtar was not picked for any test," a source close to the Pakistani player who took part in the IPL said.
