    Doping scandal in IPL

    Just saw this on Cricinfo: http://content-usa.cricinfo.com/ipl/...ry/360969.html .

    Not surprising at all. Just I don't understand how you would have to determine the identity of the player, they should have the identity attached to the specimen if they did it right.

    I say we blame this on Asif/Shoaib and move on.

    The tests need to be done anonymously for the sake of security, and so that no dodgy doctor with a grudge can get his least favourite player banned.

    Also, this is a mountain being made out of a molehill so far. Could easily turn out that the guy who tested positive had a prescription, or the 'B' sample could be negative, or whatever. It'd be jumping the gun to say there's a drugs cheat in the IPL.

    Although, it would be kinda fun just to blame it on Asif or Shoaib.

    I wonder who it is. There is no drug testing in Indian domestic cricket, so it could very well be one of the domestic players.

    It would be more fun if it was another Pakistani player. But its probably gonna be boring and be some domestic player that no one outside of India has heard about

    I am. It would give me immense pleasure to see him banned for anything. Especially drugs from an IPL test, from which he was already banned last season.

    For the record, I don't give a toss about steroids. But if its Harbhajan, I can make an exception. Next punishment for him, for any transgressions whatsoever, ought to be a life ban.

    Obviously Shoaib. The man was a tearaway sensation when he finally made it to the IPL. And it's common knowledge that he's never bowled at high pace without the help of, at the very least, Panadol.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Can't be Dravid. His performances were hardly enhanced at the IPL.

    Rahul Dravid was not as bad in the IPL as people make out.
