PAARL - Saeed Anwar and Saleem Elahi became the first two Pakistanis to undergo a random dope test here under the new regimen introduced by the ICC.

The urine samples of the two Pakistani batsmen were taken immediately after the side won its fixture against Holland by the ICC panel of doctors. The result of the tests are likely to come within a week.

The entire Pakistan team was tested for banned substances by the PCB's panel of doctors, and each of the players was found negative after examination by an IOC-approved clinic at Penang (Malaysia).

The Pakistan team management was told on the morning of the match that random tests would be conducted after the match.

Speaking on the issue, the team spokesman said: "We have nothing to be concerned about. We believe that our boys are clean, but we have to follow the ICC regimen".
