Mumbai: The Board of Control for Cricket in INdia (BCCI) on Thursday handed Punjab wicketkeeper-batsman Abhishek Gupta a retrospective eight-month suspension for an “inadvertent” doping violation.
The 27-year-old’s suspension started from January 15 and will end on September 14 this year.
“Gupta had inadvertently ingested a prohibited substance (terbutaline), which can be commonly found in cough syrups,” said the BCCI in a statement.
“Gupta had provided a urine sample as part of the BCCI’s anti-doping testing program during a domestic T-20 competition on 15th January in New Delhi.
“His sample was subsequently tested and found to contain Terbutaline,” the statement added.
