Virender Sehwag and former Delhi player Vinay Lamba have been made members of the Anti-Doping Appeal Panel of the National Anti-Doping Agency.
The legendary opener and former Delhi cricketer Lamba have been made members of the Anti-Doping Appeal Panel of the NADA in a rare instance of cricketers being roped in for such committees, PTI has reported.
Sehwag and Lamba, who played 76 first-class matches for Delhi between 1967 and 1981, are in the six-member panel headed by retired judge R V Easwar.
The other members are senior advocate Vibha Datta Makhija, Dr. Naveen Dang and Harsh Mahajan.
However, Sehwag was not able to attend the first meeting of the panel. The meeting in Delhi has reportedly lasted two hours.
The NADA also appointed members of Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel (ADDP) which has international sportspersons like Kunjarani Devi (weightlifting), Akhil Kumar (boxing), Reeth Abraham (athletics), Jagbir Singh (hockey) and Rohit Rajpal (tennis).
The ADDP will be headed by retired district and sessions judge Kuldeep Singh. The other members are Manik Dogra (advocate), Nalin Kohli (advocate), Bina Gupta (advocate), and Surbhi Mehta (advocate), Vinod Dogra, Dr. Ankit Sharma and Dr. Chengappa.
As per the norm, any doping case is first heard by the ADDP and then the matter is referred to ADAP.
