The International Cricket Council (ICC) recognises the importance of education as a vital element in the broader fight against doping in sport. The ICC remains committed to supporting its Member Boards in drug awareness and education.
Dangers of Doping
The ICC’s concern with Doping goes beyond the fact that it is against the rules of sport. It is also concerned with the risks associated with the use of supplements, as well as the health consequences of using specific substances (including steroids, EPO, stimulants, hGH, masking agents, marijuana and narcotics).
The ‘Dangers of Doping’ leaflet addresses the health and safety risks associated with categories of substances and methods on the WADA Prohibited List (List) and the risks associated with the use of supplements.
