On the basis of the 2016 Anti-Doping Testing Figures, around 137 cricketers recorded under BCCI were tested ‘In Competition’ in with one cricketer who was tested positive. It could be accomplished that the cricketer in inquiry has tested with positive result during a BCCI domestic occasion like Duleep Trophy, Ranji Trophy, IPL or Irani Trophy – as it took place ‘In Competition’. It could or could not be an international cricketer except it is for sure that it did not take place during an ICC match, as normally the world cricket’s prevailing body mandatorily sends a press release.

There were around 15 (OOC) ‘Out Of Competition’ tests carried out throughout the same stage in which all results were off-putting. When BCCI was contacted regarding the individuality of the cricketer, a top BCCI bureaucrat, who handles the precise area, told PTI: “We have not received any kind of report from the WADA for now hence; we are not in a situation to disclose the name of the cricketer.”
