Talented India opener Prithvi Shaw was on Tuesday banned from all forms of cricket for a period of eight months after failing a dope test, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) said. A BCCI release said Shaw had “inadvertently ingested a prohibited substance, which can be commonly found in cough syrups”. Shaw's suspension is retrospective in nature, starting from March 16 and ending on November 15 which rules him out for India's home series against South Africa and Bangladesh.
