Kumble nominated to WADA panel

Posted December 19, 2008 16:36:00

India's former cricket skipper Anil Kumble has been nominated to the athletes' committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The leg spinner, who retired last month as the third highest Test wicket taker with 619 wickets, has been included in the list announced on the WADA website (www.wada-ama.org).

Kumble's term will start on January 1. One-third of the panel members, who play an advisory role in policy and priority development of the agency, are replaced on a rotational basis annually.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is a signatory to the WADA Code.
