Richard Ings was the head of the Australian Sports Drug Agency, and then the Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority from 2005 – 2010.
In this interview, he talks to us about Drugs in Cricket.

Here are WADA’s own numbers, highlighting how many cricketers were tested in 2012.

We also talk about the mankad, Narine’s choice to play the IPL final over representing the West Indies in a Test series, Cat delivers a beautifully scripted monologue that is critical of the English Test squad and more.
