ICC agrees to compensate Kusal

6 July 2016 11:54 am - 3     - {{hitsCtrl.values.hits}}


The International Cricket Council (ICC) have agreed to compensate cricketer Kusal Janith Perera over the doping charges made against him that were proved false, Sri Lanka Cricket said today.

The ICC withdrew a doping case against cricketer Kusal Janith Perera last month after his lawyers proved scientifically and beyond reasonable doubt that the testing process of the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) accredited lab report in Qatar was flawed.

Soon after withdrawing the provisional suspension issued the ICC released a statement apologizing to the cricketer and said it would call for an urgent explanation from the WADA laboratory which tested Perera’s urine sample.

The SLC said the ICC tests would not be performed at Qatar WADA laboratory hereafter.
