Zimbabwe Cricket dealt a huge blow on Thursday as two of their cricketers were found guilty of breaching the anti-doping rules ahead of their tour to Sri Lanka.

International cricketers Wesley Madhevere and Brandon Mavuta were suspended immediately and were barred from participating in any cricket activities pending a hearing and have been charged under the Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) Code of Conduct.

Both tested positive for a banned recreational drug in an out-of-competition case during a recent in-house doping test, according to a statement from ZC.

Mavuta has played 26 international games, including the recent match against Ireland, while Madhevere has represented Zimbabwe in nearly 100 matches.

Zimbabwe is touring Sri Lanka in January, with the 3-match ODI series starting on the 3rd next year. They will also play as many T20Is following that.
