Bears player positive for drugs

A Warwickshire player is set to appear before the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) disciplinary panel, after he was tested positive in a drug test.

The player, whose name hasn’t been revealed, tested positive for a recreational drug, known to enhance performance, before Warwickshire’s opening County Championship match against Glamorgan at Edgbaston in April.

This is not the first drugs case to come out of the county; last October, Graham Wagg was banned for 15 months after being found guilty, although he is no longer employed by the county club.

Dennis Amiss, chief executive at Warwickshire, confirmed the latest case, “One of our players has given a positive sample.”
