Bangladesh's promising left-arm quick kazi Anik Islam is all set to face a lengthy suspension after being found positive in dope test.

Anik, who played in the last edition of ICC Under-19 World Cup, was found dope positive in the last round of National Cricket League where he played for Dhaka Metro.

Though his name was initially included in the Bangabandhu BPL player's draft it was later withdrawn. He has been removed from every BCB programme he had been part of previously, chief selector Minhajul Abedin Nannu said.

"We have been informed by the medical team that he was found positive in dope test during the NCL. We decided not to include him in further part of NCL. We also decided not to include his name in the BPL players draft," Minhajul said in the city yesterday.

"He was part of some of our program but now we have decided not to include him in our structure until we are getting the full report from the medical team," he said.

According to BCB's anti-doping rule, it was stated in clause 10.3.2 for a violation of Article 2.4 (Whereabouts Failures) that is the Cricketer's first offence, the period of Ineligibility imposed shall be two years subject to reduction down to a minimum of one year depending on the Cricketer's degree of Fault.

The flexibility between two years and one year of Ineligibility in this Articles is not available to Cricketers where a pattern of last minute whereabouts changes or other conduct raises a serious suspicion that the Cricketer was trying to avoid being available for Testing.
