Andre Russell Banned from Cricket

IAS Prelims 2023

West Indian all-rounder Andre Russell has been banned from all cricket for a year over a doping code violation.

The 28-year-old did not file his whereabouts on three occasions in 2015 as required, which constitutes a failed drugs test under World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) guidelines.

Under WADA’s whereabouts rules, elite athletes must supply details of where they will be for one hour each day to facilitate drug tests.
