Cricket Australia chief James Sutherland said yesterday that there was nothing in a damning government report into doping that linked the sport to drugs

A year-long Australian Crime Commission probe concluded that drug use was widespread across multiple Australian sporting codes, with growing links to organised crime. 

“There was no specific evidence or links suggested to Australian cricket, which has a record of proactive management on issues such as anti-doping, illicit drugs, anti-corruption and bans on cricketers and cricket employees betting on cricket,” he said.
