JADCO imposes one-year ban on Russell

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC) – West Indies Twenty20 star, Andre Russell, was yesterday ruled out of several major upcoming global tournaments after being slapped with a 12-month ban for an anti-doping whereabouts violation.The 28-year-old globetrotting all-rounder missed three drugs tests back in 2015 after failing to report his whereabouts, and was penalised by the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission(JADCO).He had faced up to a two-year ban if found guilty of the violation but will now sit out the game until next January under the 12-month sanction which takes immediate effect.“What the panel was required to do was look at the evidence given and to find whether the complainant established the requisite standard of proof, and that standard of proof is that it must be to the comfortable satisfaction of the tribunal that there was a first filing failure,” chairman Hugh Faulkner said afterwards.“And we found from the evidence that there was a first filing failure for the period January 1, 2015 to March 31, 2015.”He continued: “Again, using the standard of proof that we had enunciated, again to the comfortable satisfaction of the tribunal, we found that there was a filing failure – a failure to find whereabouts information – for the period 1st July 2015 to 30th September 2015, and then the third filing failure would have been for 1st July 2015 to 30th September 2015 but specifically, failure to provide the explanation required by the anti-doping rules for why you are late with the whereabouts filing.“Now the rules require that there must be three missed tests and that three missed tests happen within a 12-month period and we found that was the case.“As a result, the panel had no option but to apply a sanction. We looked at all the circumstances of the case, we looked at the evidence, looked at previous cases – precedents – and we came up with a one-year sanction.”Russell has played one Test, 51 One-Day Internationals and 43 T20s for West Indies, and was part of the squad which won an unprecedented second T20 World Cup in India last April.However, it has been on the global T20 circuit where he has made his name as an athletic fielder, a dashing lower order batsman and a lively seamer.In particular, he will miss the cash-rich Indian Premier League where he is contracted to Kolkata Knight Riders and for whom he is a key player.KKR’s chief executive Venky Mysore described Russell’s ban as a “big loss”.Russell also features for Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League in Australia, Sylhet Royals in the Bangladesh Premier League, Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League and Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League.The hearing to determine Russell’s fate wrapped up last September and he continued to play while awaiting the judgement to be handed down.Faulkner said the panel had opted not to make the dates of the ban retroactive and had also felt under the circumstances, that only a one-year ban was necessary.“In some instances, they (bans) commence on earlier dates before the decision and in this instance, bearing in mind all the circumstances, we believe the commencement date should be at the date of the decision,” Faulkner pointed out.He added: “In our decision, we cited the circumstances, we cited the cases and explained therein … our decision (not to apply) the maximum (ban).”Earlier this month, Russell was forced out of the Big Bash with a hamstring injury.last_img read more

Reaction to England’s dramatic win in third Ashes Test

first_imgLEEDS, England (Reuters) – Reaction after Ben Stokes’s unbeaten 135 earned England a thrilling one-wicket victory in the third Ashes Test to level the series against Australia at 1-1 on Sunday.England captain Joe Root:“Ben Stokes is a freak, he’s incredible. The message at the start was to just keep believing. If we had two people out there still breathing then we have a chance.“After Stokes got to 60, 70 he looked like he wasn’t going to get out. To win a game on your own from there is just amazing. He does have recent experience of doing it. Just incredible to watch unfold.”Australia captain Tim Paine:“Sometimes, people make mistakes and we made a couple today which cost us the test match along with the unbelievable innings.“We have time now to stick together and bounce back. If we get caught up in the emotion of it all then the series can be taken away from us quickly.“The facts is we have been in a position to win every Test match so far.”England all-rounder Ben Stokes, who was named man-of-the-match:“It probably matches the World Cup, to be honest. Unbelievable, it’s one I’ll never forget.“I never gave up. When Jack Leach came in it was pretty clear what I had to do. I told him five and one, I’d take five balls and give him one.“Leachy is our super-nightwatchman so I backed him, knowing what we had to do. I couldn’t watch at the end. I couldn’t watch the balls going down.England’s tail-end hero Jack Leach, who finished unbeaten on one from 17 balls:“Are you expecting to get some sense out of me right now?“I got off the pitch and then thought, ‘What has Ben Stokes just done?’ I was running towards him after he hit the winning runs and it was the best feeling ever.”England bowler Stuart Broad:“It was one of those ‘I was there’ moments. I don’t think anyone in this ground will see a better innings. It had everything. He (Stokes) struck the ball beautifully.“The bloke has got the heart of a lion. Everything he does is for the team. He is the perfect team mate.“The belief has always been there in this game. But nine down, one ball finishes the Ashes series; of course I thought the Ashes were over.”Former England all-rounder Ian Botham:“It takes a remarkable man and I said this morning that someone needed to front up and be strong.“I’ve banged the Ben Stokes drum for a long time now and I know when other players see him they think there is something special about him.“He is very, very valuable to cricket — not just England, he will sell the game worldwide. He should enjoy every moment. It was a really remarkable performance.”Former England batsman Geoffrey Boycott on Twitter:“I’ve seen some remarkable cricket moments in my life but that is the best I’ve seen in over 50 years.“@benstokes38 saved the Ashes and gave a magical inspirational innings. Even better than his World Cup performance.”Former England captain Nasser Hussain:“It will test the mental toughness of the Australian side.“What England need to do in the next couple of games is make them think, ‘crikey, I wish we’d done some things better at Headingley.’”Former England captain Michael Vaughan, who led the 2005 Ashes-winning team:“That is massive for Joe Root. I’ve been in that situation where your team is really struggling. This is his time to try and win an Ashes series on home turf.“All England captains need a great all-rounder. I had Andrew Flintoff. Mike Brearley had Ian Botham. And Joe Root has Ben Stokes.”Former England captain Michael Atherton:“On this ground, great English innings in recent years, you’re thinking Botham in 1981, (Graham) Gooch in 1991, (Mark) Butcher 2001 and Ben Stokes has to top all those.“Australia, Ashes at stake, this has reignited Ashes after England were dead and buried.”Former Australia leg-spinner Shane Warne:“Stokes is one of those guys who you want in the trenches with you; he’s one of the guys who train harder than I’ve ever seen anyone train.“He’s an amazing cricketer and special talent. But when the opportunity presents itself you still have to take it.”Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting:“I’m not sure I’ve seen anything better than that on a Test ground, to be honest.“He (Stokes) scored two off 64 balls but we always felt that if he was there then England were going to be a chance to win. Deep down, he knew that as well.“He wanted to be the man to be there at the end regardless of how long it took.”England fast bowler Jofra Archer on Twitter:“This is by far the most intense game I’ve ever seen in my life.”Former Australia bowler Glenn McGrath on BBC’s Test Match Special:“What a class cricketer Ben Stokes is. Amazing with bat, ball and in the field. Is there a better all-rounder in the world right now?”Former South Africa captain AB de Villiers on Twitter:“That was pretty special! @benstokes38, that was ridiculous! Well done. Ashes alive and well.”Former Australia bowler Brad Hogg on Twitter:“@benstokes38 most valuable player in the world game today. Brilliant performance. Hats off to you.”Former England soccer international Gary Lineker:“If you’re not into cricket, you have my utmost sympathy.”last_img read more
