Pradeep Sangwan banned for 18 months
Pradeep Sangwan, the Delhi seamer, has been banned for 18 months from taking part in any BCCI run tournament till November 5, 2014 for violating the anti-doping regulations during the course of IPL 2013. The BCCI-appointed anti-doping panel found that Sangwan’s sample showed the presence of stanozolol, a prohibited steroid.
Random tests are conducted during the IPL, like in ICC tournaments. The BCCI, which doesn’t come under the WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) or the NADA (National Anti-Doping Agency), follow their own anti-doping procedures.
Sangwan, 22, played only two matches for Knight Riders in 2013 and failed to pick up a single wicket. He made his first-class debut in 2007 and has played 38 matches for Delhi since then.
