On Sunday, many eyebrows went up when BCCI President Shashank Manohar went public over the out-of-competition testing norms of WADA (World Anti Doping Agency). He had said that the "whereabout" clause was an infringement of the privacy of the players and also posed security risks for the them.

A new angle over the "whereabout" clause of the WADA agreement has been presented by Sports Minister M. S. Gill.

In the latest development our own Sports Minister M. S. Gill has spoken in the matter.

He has dismissed the claim by BCCI chief and asked the cricketers to fall in line without cribbing. He was surprised at the stand of the cricketers especially after the fact that most sportspersons across the world have already signed it.

Gill said that the world is concerned about doping and we should support WADA in its cause.
