Yasir Shah Got Banned Earlier Today

By Hamza Ghaznavi | 27 Dec, 2015

Pakistan’s gifted legspinner, Yasir Shah, earlier today got suspended for use of banned substances. He has been provisionally suspended under the ICC’s anti-doping code for testing positive for a banned substance.

What does this mean?

While under provisional suspension, he cannot play under any capacity in either international or local matches organized by ICC, national board or it’s affiliate members. So basically no PSL or T20 world cup for the poor man’s Messi.

A sample taken from Yasir on November 13, when Pakistan played an ODI against England in Abu Dhabi, was found to contain chlortalidone, which is on WADA’s (World Anti-Doping Agency) prohibited list of diuretics and masking agents.


This sucks.

Yasir Shah filled the gap rather miraculously since Ajmal got banned last year (and lost his magic). He has been the back bone of Pakistan’s bowling and has one of the major reasons for Pakistan’s test dominance in recent times.

So how did Pakistanis respond?


Well, everyone has their own theories.


For this guy, it was fate.

Shane Warne who’s also a big fan of Yasir Shah’s bowling  had his share of problems with drugs.


And of course, there were those that jumped to conspiracy theories. Typical.


Some just simply tried to reach Allah regarding the matter.


But these guys had logical reasons for what happened.


Meanwhile, this guy had philosophical queries. 


But maybe there’s hope???


Or not…


But the jury is still out…sort of.


Just when you thought the Aamir issue had been put to rest, a new issue arises. Say what you will, Pakistani cricket is never short of surprises.


Do you think the PCB should take partial responsibility for this? After all, many of these players come from very humble backgrounds and are therefore can be very easily influenced into indulging in illegal activities without understanding the consequences?
