Kusal Perera eyes comeback as doping charges dropped

May 14, 2016 06:58 PM ISTColombo: Sri Lankan wicket-keeper Kusal Perera has expressed hope to return to international cricket after officials admitted the analysis of a doping test which triggered his suspension had been botched.

Perera said he was hopeful of being fit and ready to play in the home series against Australia at the end of July, linking up with his teammates who are currently on tour in England.

While Perera was suspended during Sri Lanka’s tour of New Zealand last December, his positive result came from out-of-competition testing at a laboratory in Qatar accredited by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The International Cricket Council (ICC) lifted the suspension with immediate effect late on Wednesday when it described the test as “an atypical finding” that could not be construed as evidence of doping.
