Yusuf Pathan, a hard-hitting batsman and offspinner was recently suspended by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for five months on the grounds of a doping violation. Doping violation means that he consumed a forbidden material or a drug that is against the laws in sports.

Like various other professions, now even sports is filled with cases of drug consumption. There are a majority of players who are caught for consuming prohibited substance directly or indirectly.
