Pakistani team player Yasir Shah, also known for his style as a leg-spinner, has been banned for three months for breaking the International Cricket Council’s hostile to doping code.Shah had been temporarily suspended in late December after a tried specimen from the bowler uncovered the vicinity of chlorthalidone, which is under the classification of diuretics and specializes in the World Anti-Doping Agency’s rundown.

The ICC acknowledged Shah’s claim that he had taken the banned substance for remedial reasons, in particular, to treat hypertension only. The ICC said that he had erroneously taken his wife’s medicine which contained chlortalidone, rather than his own. The test was completed after Pakistan’s one-day universal against England in Abu Dhabi on 13th November and the 29-year-old, once hailed as a natural successor to the Australian leg-spinner Shane Warne, will now be banned till 27th March. It implies that Shah will miss the Asia Cup and the World Twenty 20 while his first real trip after his arrival could be with Pakistan’s tour of England this spring.

Shah played in two test matches against England in the United Arab Emirates a year ago and grabbed 15 wickets altogether. He as of now has 76 scalps from 12 tests. Having made his test debut in 2014, over three years subsequent to including in the shorter organizations, Shah turned into the snappiest Pakistani bowler to 50 wickets in the five-day diversion.

“Today’s declaration strengthens ICC’s zero-resilience way to deal with doping, and reminds every single worldwide cricketer that they remain by and by in charge of guaranteeing that anything they eat, drink or put into their bodies does not bring about a hostile to doping standard infringement,” said the ICC’s General Administrator, Geoff Allardice.

Shah included an announcement issued by the ICC:

“I assure all fans and followers of the Pakistan cricket team that I have never taken a performance-enhancing substance, nor have I ever had the intent of masking any such substance. I have always been careful to check my medication with doctors and medical support staff to ensure it does not contain any substance on the prohibited list. However, I acknowledge that I should have taken extra precautions to ensure that my blood pressure medication was stored separately from my wife’s medication so that there was no possibility of my wife’s medication being mistaken for my own. Therefore, I accept the consequences imposed upon me.”

In October 2015, Warne stacked recognition on Shah by means of his Instagram account, saying:
“Simply completed a net session with Yasir Shah. He has the best leg break I’ve ever seen!! He was wearing them by the end! A debt of gratitude is in order for having me at preparing Yasir, was an honor to work with.”

With time he was getting good recognition internationally too but the mistake by the young player has caused his career a roll back and now he has to strive harder to reach out of the consequences that are being imposed on him.
