International Cricket Council (ICC) on 7 February 2016 suspended Pakistan’s leg-spinner Yasir Shah for three months after he tested positive for a banned substance, chlortalidone.

The 29-year-old Yasir was suspended from Cricket after he pleaded guilty to breaching the ICC's Anti-Doping Code that relates to the presence of a banned substance in a player's sample.


Chlortalidone, also used to treat high blood pressure, is on WADA's prohibited list of diuretics and masking agents and is prohibited both in-competition and out-of-competition.

He will be available to play again on 27 March 2016. The three-month penalty was backdated to 27 December 2015, when Yasir was provisionally suspended after testing positive for a banned substance. His sample was taken on 13 November 2015, during the one-day international series between Pakistan and England in the United Arab Emirates.

Shah holds the record for being the fastest Pakistani bowler to reach the 50-wicket mark.
