The BCCI has already issued a letter to the Delhi and Districts Cricket Association (DDCA) in this regard. There have been traces of banned substances in his 'A' sample," a top BCCI official told PTI preferring anonymity.<br /> <br /> The news was kept undercover to save the image of the IPL from further damage after it was rocked by the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tags/IPL-2013-spot_fixing-controversy/post" target="_blank">spot-fixing controversy</a>.<br /> <br /> "India’s new to handling doping issues, certainly in cricket, which is why there are no experts really... The BCCI did have plenty of discussion, an internal debate, before going for a tribunal made up of foreigners," a source was quoted as saying by <em>The Telegraph</em>.<br /> <br /> Although there was no confirmation from BCCI’s side, another source in Chennai confirmed.<br /> <br /> BCCI is reported to have approached 'top-bracket professional’ and initially there was a decision to constitute an all-desi (why not say all-Indian) tribunal.<br /> <br /> According to reports, 'preliminary hearing’ will take place 'within a week or so’. The hearing is supposed to happen via a tele-conference.
