Zimbabwe suspends two players over alleged drug use

Madhevere and Mavuta tested positive for a banned recreational drug in an out-of-competition case recorded during a recent in-house doping test

Update : 24 Dec 2023, 12:24 AM

All-rounders Wessly Madhevere and Brandon Mavuta have been suspended by Zimbabwe Cricket pending a hearing after they allegedly tested positive for a banned recreational drug, officials said Thursday.

Madhevere, 23, has played in 98 matches across all formats for Zimbabwe, his last a Twenty20 against Ireland on December 10.

Mavuta, 26, featured in the last of his 26 internationals in a one-dayer against the same opponents Sunday.

"ZC has with immediate effect suspended two Zimbabwe international players from all cricket activities, pending a hearing, for allegedly breaching anti-doping rules," ZC said in a statement.

"The concerned players, Madhevere and Mavuta, both tested positive for a banned recreational drug in an out-of-competition case recorded during a recent in-house doping test."

The suspensions came a day after coach Dave Houghton resigned from his position ahead of a white-ball tour to Sri Lanka in January.
