ICC forms group to look at Indian anti-doping concerns

6:18 am on 7 August 2009

The International Cricket Council has announced a working group in a bid to ease concerns from the Indian Cricket Board over anti-doping regulations.

Ex-India captain Anil Kumble, who also serves on a World Anti-Doping Authority committee, will be part of the group.

India players objected to a Wada code requiring their whereabouts in advance for an hour a day, 365 days a year.

ICC chief executive Haroon Lorgat will also be part of the group, along with Kumble, BCCI Hon Secretary N Srinivasan and ICC Principal Advisor Inderjit Singh Bindra.

Lorgat says he's pleased they've constituted this group as I believe it will help to resolve the practical concerns of India players.
