BCCI To Meet On How To Deal With Pressure From National Anti-Doping Agency
The BCCI will soon have a meeting to "chalk out a plan to deal with mounting pressure" from the National Anti-Doping Agency that wants India cricket captain Virat Kohli and company "under its ambit," according to the PTI. There is a Committee of Administrators meeting in Mumbai on Friday, where the issue will come up for discussion but, as of now, Indian cricket's governing body is "unlikely to budge from its current stand." The top leadership of BCCI believes that trying to get a Kohli or Mahendra Singh Dhoni to sign the "whereabouts clause" is one of the main reasons behind NADA wanting BCCI to come under its wing. The BCCI hired Sweden's Int'l Drug Testing Management for testing work and is "likely to continue with it." The top Indian cricketers, "who are always in the spotlight," have time and again protested that signing the whereabouts clause would lead to infringement of privacy (PTI, 10/29).
