Pilot drug-testing programme concluded

The ECB has concluded its pilot programme, conducted throughout this summer in cooperation with the PCA, to screen all professional cricketers for illicit drugs.

Over 400 players have provided hair samples for analysis.

Whilst it has never been the intention to report the results publicly, the ECB and PCA have been extremely reassured and satisfied by the results, and have concluded that the player education and testing programmes have been valuable and should be continued in future seasons.
