Indian middle order batsman Yuvraj Singh on Saturday said he would go by the collective decision of the players on the question of the contentious “Whereabout Requirements” clause of the WADA anti-doping code.
Yuvraj said some of the Indian players, who are in the list of those required to furnish their whereabouts to the International Cricket Council in advance, will meet an ICC lawyer tomorrow in Mumbai and take a collective decision.
“Our concern is that we play 9-10 months of continuous cricket and when we are not playing we should be given that free time. We have a meeting tomorrow with the ICC and depending on that we will take a decision,” Yuvraj said on the sidelines of Reebok’s footwear collection launch in New Delhi.
“Every team has their own decision, similarly we have our own. It a complete team decision and I would go by what the team decides. I don’t have any individual opinion and even if I have I won’t like to discuss it now,” he added.
The Indian players missed the July 31 deadline to sign the WADA anti-doping code and are awaiting a meeting between the ICC and BCCI tomorrow to get their concerns addressed on the contentious issue.
