After football, it is cricket which has the highest fan following in the world. Cricket fans are also very excited. Cricketers hit fours and sixes with their bat, which entertains the fans a lot.
But sometimes the cricketers themselves make some such mistakes, which are very shameful, and the player also gets punished for it.
Two such players of the cricket world have been caught taking drugs, due to which the Cricket Board has taken strict action against the players and banned them. Let us tell you who are these two players who have been caught taking drugs.
Let us tell you that both the players who were banned from cricket are residents of Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe players Wesley Madhewere and Brandon Mavutua have been found taking drugs, due to which both players have been banned.
Last week both the players had confessed to their crime. For this reason, on Thursday, the Zimbabwe Cricket Board, while sentencing the players, banned both of them for the next 4 months. In such a situation, Wesley Madhevere and Brandon Mavutua will not be seen playing international cricket for the next 4 months.
Let us tell you that during the in-house dope test in December last year, both the players were found consuming drugs.
The investigation revealed that both the players had consumed drugs, hence in January 2024, a 50 percent fee was deducted from the salaries of both the players as punishment.
Regarding this, the Cricket Board said that consuming drugs is like bringing cricket into disrepute. For this reason, both will be punished.
