It has been reported that Prithvi Shaw can likely make a comeback after serving eight months of suspension due to doping violations. The BCCI suspended him in July of this year. Mr. Milind Rege, the chairman of state ad-hoc selection panel, said that the selection of Prithvi Shaw is likely to be discussed by the panel in the coming days.
Rege also says, “He 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.”
BCCI also reported, “Prithvi Shaw, registered with Mumbai Cricket Association, has been suspended for a doping violation. Shaw had inadvertently ingested a prohibited substance, which can be commonly found in cough syrups.”
On July 16, Prithvi Shaw was charged with Anti- Dope Rule Violation (ADRV) under the BCCI Anti-Doping Rule (ADR) Article 2.1, a charge to which Shaw admitted but asserted that it was inadvertent as he ingested the over-the-counter cough syrup.
