Pakistan leg spinner Shah suspended for 3 months

ISLAMABAD (AP) The ICC suspended Pakistan leg spinner Yasir Shah on Sunday for three months after he tested positive for a banned substance.

Shah was tested during the one-day international series between Pakistan and England in the United Arab Emirates in November. The ICC then provisionally suspended him in December when the result showed that his sample contained the banned substance chlortalidone.

The ICC said in a statement Shas has "admitted the violation and three-month suspension has been imposed." The ban starts from Dec. 27, 2015, the day Shah was provisionally suspended. It means Shah will not be eligible for selection for next month's World Twenty20 in India.
