    Be it Sachin Tendulkar getting tax exemption while importing his Ferari and now the “whereabouts system" set up by the World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada); Why India Cricketers treated differently compared to other sports?

    If player like Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and some 300 organisation can sign on the new anti doping clause of WADA what is the problem with our cricketers? It may be because of the financial power of BBCI in cricket that it is backing the players. Otherwise it must have forced it’s players to sign on it.

    Like to know all of your views.

    Are Tendulkar-Dhoni above Phelps & Bolt?​

    While the cricket world awaited with bated breath to know what position Indian cricket’s governing body - the BCCI would take in order to push forward the uncomfortable ‘whereabouts’ clause of World Anti Doping Agency, the Indian board made it clear that it would not succumb to anything and sided with their players. Prima-facie, what the BCCI has done seems to be right, if one looks at the players’ point of view, but what it has done is something which will only be detrimental for the reputation and transparency of players like Sachin Tendulkar and Mahendra Singh Dhoni.

    By refusing to toe the WADA line, BCCI has created a problem for International Cricket Council, as it would become toothless if a few more boards follow the Indian board’s footsteps. So, let us take a look at the contentious clause which has Team India worried , and because which it is refusing to sign on the dotted line.

    In what is possibly, till date, one of the most effective ways to free the sport from cheats and create a fair-play environment, WADA brought its anti-doping code in effect from January 1, 2004. According to its draft, the WADA code is the core document that provides the framework for harmonized anti-doping policies, rules, and regulations within sporting organizations and among public authorities. And to guarantee a dope free sport, it has ensured that players are tested randomly and made to undertake routine sample tests, even if they are not playing.

    It's money honey. BCCI runs it's writ in the ICC. also there are some players on the terrorists list and they cannot give away there whereabouts to anyone. I don't u derstsnd why WADA needs that in the first place. If you need to call someone for testing in off season, I form the board or association who will in turn inform the concerned player.
