No big deal, it's an athlete's responsibility: Bindra

No big deal, it's an athlete's responsibility: Bindra

“It’s no big deal. I have been part of WADA watch list for the last three years and I had no difficulty. Every athlete has the responsibility to see that sport remains dope free,” said Bindra, who is also among the WADA’s testing pool.

“It is not that the WADA will knock at your door while you are drinking,” he added.

Bindra felt cricketers, who are protesting the clause citing privacy and security issues, were just ignorant because of which they were apprehensive.

“I do not understand the security issue. The information about cricketers will not be made public. It will be kept confidential. It is not that everyone will know about their whereabouts. I think it’s a lack of knowledge. I don’t blame them,” he said.

Under the “Whereabouts Requirements” clause, the players will have to give information about their location three months in advance for one hour every day for five days a week.

“I think it is valid clause. I don’t see anyone having a problem with it. I don’t think BCCI has a chance or a choice. They will have to sign the code.”
