Ahmed Shehzad is expected to be suspended and charged after the Pakistan Cricket Board confirmed the opening batsman tested positive for a banned substance.
On Tuesday afternoon, the PCB tweeted: “Independent Review Board report on doping case has been received by PCB. Cricketer Ahmad Shahzad has tested positive for a banned substance. PCB will issue charge sheet today.”
Last month the PCB confirmed that a Pakistan national team player had failed a doping test during a domestic match but did not reveal their identity. The test reports were sent to India for a re-check which caused the delay.
Shehzad, 26, was part of the T20 squad which toured Ireland in June and has played 13 Tests, 81 ODIs and 57 T20Is.
