July 20, 2012 21:39 IST

Indian Premier League players Rahul Sharma and Wayne Parnell have tested positive for drugs after being detained at a rave party in Mumbai on May 20.

They were among 94 people held by the Mumbai Police at Hotel Oakwoods in Juhu.

Rahul, who is in the Indian squad for the ODI series in Sri Lanka, had said after being detained, 'I am sure my results won't be positive.If tests are positive, I'll quit cricket.'

South African cricketer Parnell had claimed he and fellow-Pune Warriors team-mate Rahul were innocent and "at the wrong place, at the wrong time".
