Board of Control for Cricket in India rejects world doping norms

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Friday said it cannot be subjected to the jurisdiction of the National Anti-doping Agency (NADA), stating that it is an “autonomous body affiliated to the International Cricket Council”.

The move comes days after the Sports Ministry of India had ordered National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) to conduct dope-tests on Indian cricketers as per the principles laid down by World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) during all domestic and international games played in the nation.

The board clearly stated that it cannot be pushed under the NADA jurisdiction by saying that it is not a National Sports Federation (NSF).

Despite the pressure built up by NADA and the Indian Sports Ministry asking the agency to collect samples from cricketers during BCCI-recognised tournaments, the Indian cricket Board has asserted that it follows the necessary guidelines and none of its officials is supposed to coordinate with NADA on this.

Secretary, Department Of Sports, Rahul Bhatnagar has said "I have instructed NADA's director general (Navin Agarwal) to send his DCOs to cricket tournaments in India to collect the samples of cricketers. If the BCCI resists or creates any hurdle in NADA's functioning, we won't hesitate from taking further action against the cricket board."
