The PCB will conduct dope tests for its players during the Faysal Bank T-20, which begins in Lahore on December 1, in accordance with World Anti-Doping Authority (WADA) regulations.

"The PCB is introducing in-competition dope testing during the Twenty20 tournament in order to strive for drug-free sports and to protect the basic framework for the athletes," the board said in a statement. "Cricketers from all the regional teams participating in the Twenty20 championship will randomly be picked for dope testing.

"These tests will be conducted by WADA-accredited independent doping control officers throughout the competition."

The PCB also said it had educated approximately 500 first-class cricketers on the subject of doping. Players attended lectures and were provided with a guide in urdu, an updated list of banned drugs and an CD to enhance their education.
