New Delhi: The sixth edition of IPL, which was rocked by the spot-fixing scandal, has now been hit by a doping fiasco with Delhi and Kolkata Knight Rider's promising left-arm seamer Pradeep Sangwan failing a random dope test during the cash-rich league.
Sangwan is only the second cricketer in the history of IPL after Pakistani speedster Mohammad Asif to have been found guilty of consuming banned drugs.
"Yes, Pradeep Sangwan has tested positive for banned substances during this edition of Indian Premier League. The BCCI has already issued a letter to the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) in this regard. There have been traces of banned substances in his 'A' sample," a top BCCI official told PTI preferring anonymity.
