Andre Russell banned for one year for doping violation

If you don't file your whereabouts to the doping agency, then eventually the powers that be are going to have to take action. So Russell (age 28) was charged for negligence for not filing his whereabouts on Jan 1st, Jul 1st and Jul 25th, he had several reminders with phone calls, emails, and even letters.  

Russell has pleaded that because of his Cricket commitments he has authorised his agent to take care of this, but that didn't wash with the independent panel in Kingston Jamaica as he was given a one year ban.

His lawyer has said that they are considering options including an appeal but as it stands Russell's ban will start on 31st Jan 2017 (today) until 30th Jan 2018
