The conclusion was drawn after the 26-year-old did not request the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to test the sample 'B' while the deadline for the same expired on June 19. <p></p> <p></p>By not challenging the report, the Pakistani player has increased his chances of getting lighter punishment but ultimately, the same will depend on how strongly he presents his case. The right-hand batsman will have to present his defence in the case by July 27 and then the PCB will decide the punishment according to the rules of World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA). <p></p> <p></p>Shehzad had failed a drug test which was conducted during a domestic cricket match in Faisalabad. Subsequently, the national cricket board had decided to file a charge sheet against the Pakistani opener. Shehzad, who played his last one day international (ODI) in October 2017 against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/sri-lanka/">Sri Lanka</a>, has made 2605 runs with an average of 32.56 in 81 ODIs that he has played so far.
