Prithvi Shaw returned to Mumbai as his suspension from cricket is ended on November 15, indicated Milind Rege, chairman of the Mumbai ad-hoc selection panel.
Shaw was banned last in July 2019, by BCCI for eight months for a doping violation. “Prithvi Shaw will be free to play from November 16, so of course he will be considered for selection. I can’t make any commitment to whether he will be back, but we will certainly discuss his selection,” Rege was quoted saying by ESPNcricinfo.
The cricket governing body stated that it had recovered Terbutaline from the urine sample, provided by the cricketer during the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match on February 22, 2019, in Indore.
“On July 16, Shaw was charged with the commission of an Anti-Doping Rule Violation. Shaw responded to the charge by admitting the ADRV but asserting that it was not deliberate, this being caused due to cough syrup,” it had added.
BCCI, in their statement, had stated that they were satisfied with the explanation given by Shaw that he had taken Terbutaline inadvertently to treat a Respiratory Tract Infection and not as a performance-enhancing drug.
