Pakistan’s Yasir Shah suspended after failed drugs test

PAKISTAN bowler Yasir Shah has been provisionally suspended by the ICC after failing a drugs test.

The leg-spinner tested positive for banned substance chlortalidone following the second ODI against England in Abu Dhabi last month.

The 29-year-old took 0-70 from nine overs in that match as England won by 95 runs and has been provisionally suspended “pending the outcome of the disciplinary process”.

Shah was named in the ICC’s Test team of the year earlier this month, having taken 24 wickets in a 2-1 win over Sri Lanka.

He was also part of the team that beat England 2-0 and has played 12 Tests since making his international debut in 2011.
