The Indian Cricket League, has conducted dope tests on 68 of its players on the sidelines of a two-week training camp, in progress on the outskirts of Bangalore.

The camp is being conducted under the supervision of Jock Campbell, the ICL's newly-appointed high performance director, who emphasised on awareness of doping guidelines. "We had already stated that one of the major activities at the camp would involve a detailed re-briefing to all the ICL players on international doping policy," he said. "It is important to update our boys on the pharmaceutical products that may, unwittingly, expose them to banned substances."

His assistants are Matthew Buckley, the throwing coach, and sprint coach Zane Campbell.
