New Delhi: Sports Minister M.S. Gill’s view that cricketers should sign the World Anti-Doping Agency’s whereabouts clause is his personal opinion and the BCCI would stick to its own stance, the Indian cricket board’s spokesman Rajeev Shukla said here on Monday.
Mr. Shukla said the matter was now between the BCCI and the ICC and there was no need to raise the issue with the Sports Ministry.
“The Sports Minister has got his personal view on the subject but we at the BCCI have taken a position which ensures what is promised in the Indian Constitution,” he told journalists.
The “whereabouts” clause has become a bone of contention with the 11 Indian cricketers in the WADA pool refusing to sign the provision that requires them to inform their whereabouts three months in advance, which they feel is a breach of privacy and a security risk. — PTI
