Olympic bronze medallist wrestler Sushil Kumar on Wednesday advised the country's cricketers to cast aside their concerns on breach of privacy and security threats and accept the WADA's 'Whereabouts Clause' without any reservation.

Sushil, who is a WADA signatory, said the World Anti-doping Agency would not divulge players' personal
information to anyone and cricketers could be assured of maintaining their privacy.

 "Why are cricketers worrying so much? The worries of cricketers about infringement of privacy and possible security
threat are not justified. I am also a signatory to WADA's clauses and strictly adhere to its rules and regulations,"
Sushil told PTI.

"All the sports federations and players around the world are anti-doping agency's signatories and abide by its various
clauses. I never felt that they were divulging any players' personal information to anyone," he added.

 Sushil feels that while cricketers of England, South Africa and Australia have already signed without complains,
their Indian counterparts can also trust the WADA.
