WADA asks Indian govt's stand

September 19, 2009 03:55 PM

The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) president John Fahey has asked whether the Indian government supports the decision taken by its players and BCCI.

"The ICC is WADA code compliant and India is a member of the ICC. We have taken the matter up with Indian authorities and made a request if the Indian government supports the stand taken by the Board of Control for Cricket in India,"—he said.

He said that he is still having lots of hope that the International cricket community including Indians will come to the fold and join the global drive against doping.

He also said that its main focus is to eradicate harmonisation of the rules around the world.

"Our whole purpose and mandate is to ensure that there's harmonisation of the rules around the world including the cricket community which involves India," he added.

He also said that there is still a lot of confusion about WADA and it is not properly informed to the players.

"I think there has been and still is confusion that have not been properly informed by their anti-doping organisation or they do not fully understand the system," he added.
