ZIMBABWE Cricket (ZC) has suspended two emerging players for three months for using a recreational drug in an out-of-competition case.
According to a statement by ZC, the two players were summoned to appear before a disciplinary hearing after they were reported by a concerned citizen who caught them red-handed.
The two admitted to using a social drug on the day in question, resulting in each one of them receiving a three-month ban from cricket activities for breaching the ZC Code of Conduct for Players and Team Officials under which they were charged.
The two players are first-time offenders and ZC has opted to keep their identities confidential to give them the best chance of rehabilitation.
