BCCI selector alleges banned injections used by Indian cricketers for fitness

The Chief Selector of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), Chatan Sharma, has stirred up controversy in the Indian cricket community after being caught in a sting operation that revealed alleged doping by star cricketers.

The results of the operation have cast doubts on the integrity of the BCCI and its cricketers, who are suspected of circumventing doping tests by using banned injections.

Sharma, who was caught on tape during the sting operation, revealed to Zee News that players use “banned injections” to become 100% fit, even when they are only 80% fit.

“These injections contain a drug that is not detected in a dope test,” he explained. He also accused Jasprit Bumrah, a star cricketer, of using a similar kind of drug, citing an injury that had prevented Bumrah from being able to bend.

Sharma’s statements have raised concerns about the prevalence of doping in Indian cricket, as well as the BCCI’s ability to maintain the integrity of the sport. Some have also questioned the legality of using such injections and called for an investigation into the matter.

The use of performance-enhancing drugs in cricket is not a new issue, and the International Cricket Council (ICC) has established a strict anti-doping policy that includes random testing of players. The BCCI also has its own anti-doping policy, which requires all cricketers to undergo regular testing.

However, the effectiveness of these policies has been called into question in light of Sharma’s claims. Some have suggested that the BCCI needs to take stronger measures to combat doping, including more frequent and rigorous testing and stronger penalties for offenders.

The controversy has also led to speculation about the impact on Indian cricket and its reputation. Many fans are concerned that the allegations will tarnish the image of the sport and the country’s reputation as a cricketing powerhouse.

The BCCI has not yet released an official statement on the matter, but the controversy is likely to continue to generate debate and scrutiny in the coming days and weeks.
