MUMBAI - Team India players refusing to sign the WADA's anti-doping code over "whereabouts" clause and BCCI's decision to back the players have complicated the issue, said Dr. Danish Zaheer, expert of WADA Anti-Doping laws."The WADA is being established and recognised by UNESCO - the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. All countries who are members of UN have welcomed this agency," he said. "On October 19, 2005, WADA welcomed with great satisfaction the unanimous adoption of the first International Convention against Doping in Sport by the General Conference of UNESCO, at its plenary session". "The adoption of the Convention by UNESCO is a strong signal of the commitment of the governments of the world to the fight against doping in sport," he further added. The concept of out-of-competition is not new. The new element introduced by the 2009 Code and the International Standard for Testing (IST) is the harmonization, requested by WADA's stakeholders during the revision process, of the various whereabouts requirements applied by different anti-doping organizations. It would be unfortunate if the International Cricket Council (ICC) decides to detach from the WADA especially when the ICC wants the game to be included in Asian Games (2020) and Olympics. There will be several legal implications as well," Dr. Danish Zaheer said. The BCCI in fact was represented by the president Shashahank Manohar, who also happens to be the lawyer of repute.
