Australian board names panel to hear Warne case
February 17, 2003 17:41 IST
The Australian Cricket Board on Monday picked former Test player and selector Peter Taylor, Justice Glen Williams of the Queensland Court of Appeal and medical specialist Dr Susan White for an anti-doping committee that will hear the Shane Warne case.
Taylor, who played 13 Tests and 83 one-day internationals for Australia, was invited because of his experience.
Justice Williams and Dr White, a member of the Australian Sports Drug Medical Advisory Committee, have been a part of previous ACB anti-doping committee hearings.
A hearing date will be set once the Australian Sports Drug Agency comes out with the result of the test on Warne's 'B' sample, ACB chief executive officer James Sutherland said.
Sutherland said they will take a decision on Warne's replacement once the hearing is complete.
"At the moment, we are holding off making a decision until the ACB anti-doping committee hearing, providing that the hearing is reasonably soon," Sutherland said.
Warne has been charged with a breach of clause 4.1b of the ACB Anti-Doping Policy -- the use of prohibited methods, which include pharmaceuticals, chemical and physical manipulation.
Pharmaceutical, chemical and physical manipulation includes use of substances like diuretics, which alter, attempt to alter or may reasonably be expected to alter the integrity and validity of urine samples used in doping controls.
