WADA issue: BCCI to press for changes

The BCCI last month backed its players' refusal to sign up, citing security and privacy issues to oppose the clause requiring them to nominate a time for every day of the year when they will be available for testing.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) will discuss the Indian board's request at a special meeting in Johannesburg next month. "The BCCI's (Board of Control for Cricket in India) stand on the WADA issue is the same as it was," Manohar said. "We will next discuss the matter in the ICC's special meeting next month," he added. "Whatever we have to say on this issue, we will coordinate with the ICC."

India's sports ministry has reiterated its commitment to the global anti-doping laws after being contacted by WADA over the the BCCI stand. "The government and National Anti-Doping Agency stand fully committed to the WADA code including the provisions related to International Standards of Testing and 'whereabouts' clause," Rahul Bhatnagar, a senior sports ministry bureaucrat, had said last week.
