Low Number of Dope Tests on Indian Cricketers Sparks Debate

A recent data reveal by the National Anti-Doping Agency (NADA) has sparked debate about the low number of dope tests conducted on Indian cricketers. In 2021 and 2022, a total of 5,961 dope tests were conducted across all sports in India. Of these, only 114 were on cricketers.

This is a significantly lower number than the number of dope tests conducted on cricketers in other major cricket-playing nations. For example, in 2021, the UK Anti-Doping Agency (UKAD) conducted 96 out-of-competition tests on its cricketers, while the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority (ASADA) conducted 69 tests.

The low number of dope tests on Indian cricketers has raised concerns about the effectiveness of the country’s anti-doping program. Some experts have argued that the NADA needs to conduct more dope tests on cricketers in order to deter doping and ensure that the sport is clean.

Others have argued that the low number of dope tests is not necessarily a cause for concern. They point out that India has a relatively small number of professional cricketers, and that the NADA is already conducting a significant number of dope tests across all sports.

The debate about the low number of dope tests on Indian cricketers is likely to continue. However, the NADA has said that it is committed to conducting more dope tests on cricketers in the future.
