DOPING QUESTIONS: In Mumbai, Indranil Basu wrote the fact that doping has not "infested cricket as much as it has other sports is primarily because cricket is more of a skill-based sport." However, in the age of Twenty20, anti-doping policies "have gained significance as cricket is increasingly demanding peak physical fitness." BCCI's consultant for anti-doping control and age verification Vece Paes said, "In T20 cricket, a player's power comes into play and it's important for the cricketers to know which substances are banned and which ones can be used to nurse injuries." At a time when other sports stars have "learnt to live with the hassle of signing World Anti-Doping Association's whereabouts details every month, the cricketers are insulated from out-of-competition testing." Paes: "Out-of-competition testing is intrusive for cricketers. In any case, they are eligible for testing for nine to 10 months in a year and there is no need for them to be tested when they are not playing cricket" (TIMES OF INDIA, 10/7).
