Sehwag, Bhajji, Ashwin undergo dope tests
Colombo: Three Indian cricketers, Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin, underwent routine dope test here on Tuesday.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has adapted the World Anti-Doping Agency`s (WADA) ``whereabouts rule`` and has made it compulsory for every player to undergo the doping test.
However, cricketer Yuvraj Singh seemed to be wondering as to how many times they would have to undergo the dope test.
"How many times will we have to undergo a dope test?" said Singh.
