She is the first cricketer to be sanctioned since the BCCI agreed to come under NADA

Madhya Pradesh women allrounder Anshula Rao has been suspended from cricket for four years, backdated to July 2020, for failing a dope test in March 2020. She is the first cricketer to be sanctioned since the BCCI agreed to come under the National Anti Doping Agency’s (NADA)’s ambit in 2019.

Rao, an under-23 cricketer who hasn’t yet played for MP’s senior team, is understood to have tested positive for 19-Norandrosterone, a performance-enhancing steroid that is “prohibited at all times” for athletes under the world anti-doping code. The Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel (ADDP) heard Rao’s appeal last month and is understood to have found no evidence that she had taken the substance unwittingly.
