A regular member of Pakistan’s Test and ODI teams left-arm spinner Abdur Rehman is facing a two-year ban after he’s failed a dope test in England. The ECB has informed the PCB in this regard, a local Urdu daily reported.
Being 32-year-old, it will be extremely difficult for Abdur Rehman to go back to the international cricket after he completes the ban. As per the ICC, the PCB is bound to admit the ban given by the ECB to the left-arm spinner. Abdur Rehman is the 17th cricketer globally and 3rd in Pakistan to have failed the dope test. Earlier, the dope tests of Mohammad Asif and Shoaib Akhtar were also tested positive.
The spinner has been left out of the T20 team in the ongoing World Cup, but is a regular member of Pakistan’s Test and ODI teams. Abdur Rehman has taken 81 wickets in 17 Tests, 21 in 25 ODIs and 11 in 7 T20s.
