Pakistani cricketer Ahmed Shehzad formally charged after failing dope test

Pakistan batsman Ahmed Shehzad has been suspended and charged by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) after an independent review confirmed that he tested positive for a banned substance.
The cricketer has until July 27 to respond to the charge sheet, while he has until July 18 to decide if he wants to give a B sample test or not. 
Earlier the PCB had tweeted that it will issue a charge sheet to the opener after Shehzad tested positive for a banned substance.
The tests reports had been sent to India for a re-check which had caused a delay.
“Pakistan government’s anti-doping agency review board wanted to be very careful and double check because a senior player was involved, hence it asked an Indian lab to re-check tests,” a PCB had source said.
The PCB last month confirmed, without naming anyone, that a player had failed the dope test conducted during a domestic tournament.
“A player has reportedly tested positive for a prohibited substance. But under ICC rules PCB cannot name the player or charge-sheet him until the chemical report is CONFIRMED by the Anti-Dope Agency of the government. We should have an answer in a day or two,” PCB had tweeted on June 20.
Shehzad, 26, has struggled to nail down a place in the Pakistan squad in recent years but played in the two-match T20 series at Scotland in June, where he scored a combined 38 runs as the visitors recorded commanding victories.
