Yusuf Pathan suspended by BCCI for 5 months for failing doping test

The BCCI back-dated five-month ban on India discard Yusuf Pathan comes to an end on January 14. This means that the Baroda all-rounder will be able to participate in the IPL 2018. The ban runs from August 15, 2017, to January 14, 2018. The Baroda all-rounder was not retained by his IPL franchise Kolkata Knight Riders earlier this month. KKR retained Sunil Narine and Andre Russel in their IPL 2018 retention. The 35-year-old Baroda-born hard-hitting batsman last played for India in 2012 and has been sidelined with the emergence of other all-round options in the form of Ravindra Jadeja and Axar Patel. He played a total of 79 games for India and was part of the victorious 2011 World Cup and 2007 World T20 sides.
