Pakistan’s spin king Danish Kaneria and World Cup reserve fast bowler Mohammad Sami have said they were confident of clearing their dope tests as both underwent their respective drug tests here on Saturday.
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s medical officer Dr Sohail took urine samples of the two bowlers along with middle-order batsman Mohammad Yousuf at a local hotel.
So far the PCB has taken samples of 16 players relating the World Cup starting next month in West Indies. The tests of 13 players were conducted in Lahore on Friday after their return from South Africa.
Sami said he was very cautious even of taking diets since the unfortunate experience of pacemen Shoaib and Asif who were handed bans on failing their dope tests last November before getting cleared and hoped he will clear his test. Dr Sohail has already provided the list of prohibited medicines to the players, and explained to them the doping procedure and also briefed them about the precautionary measures.
