Delhi: In a stern response to India’s anti-doping body NADA, the has said that government body has no jurisdiction to conduct dopes tests on Indian cricketers.

In a letter written on November 8 to NADA chief Navin Agarwal, CEO Rahul Johri made it clear that there is no requirement for NADA to tests its cricketers since the board is not a National Sports Federation (NSF) and its present anti-doping system is robust enough.

“It is relevant to mention here that is not a National Sports Federation. Accordingly, NADA does not have jurisdiction to conduct dope testing of Indian cricketers in any domestic or international organised or under the aegis of BCCI,” Johri wrote in the letter.

“In light of the aforesaid, there is no requirement for any official to co-ordinate with NADA for dope testing of Indian cricketers either during competitions or out of completions.”

The response was prepared with instructions from Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators.

Johri said BCCI’s existing anti-doping mechanism is robust enough.”The already has a robust dope testing mechanism which is employed for both during competitions and out-of- competitions and the testing of samples by IDTM is already being done at WADA accredited laboratory (NDTL) under aegis of the Sports Ministry.”

He further claimed that the is compliant with the WADA Code.

He further reasoned that since is an autonomous body affiliated to the International Cricket Council (ICC), it is only required to operate within the rules and regulations of the ICC.
