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
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
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.
