West Indies allrounder Andre Russell has committed an "anti-doping whereabouts" violation, according to the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO), and could face a lengthy ban from cricket.
Russell, who is part of the West Indies squad for the upcoming World T20, has reportedly missed three such tests in a 12-month period, which equates to a failed test under doping laws.
"We received notification of Russell's violation about two weeks ago and I've appointed a panel to hear his case," JADCO independent disciplinary panel chairman Kent Pantry told Reuters.
Athletes must make their whereabouts known to local anti-doping agencies to facilitate testing. Russell could face a possible two-year ban if found guilty of the violation.
"There is a process regarding the findings by JADCO," the West Indies Cricket Board said in a statement. "All that will be observed and you will be advised accordingly."
