Saturday - Of Dope Tests and Secrets

The Indian players (Sachin Tendulkar, captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virender Sehwag, Yuvraj Singh, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Gautam Gambhir, Irfan Pathan, Munaf Patel, Jhulan Goswami and Mithali Raj) who have been selected by the ICC for dope testing have objected to the whereabouts clause. (The clause requires players to detail their whereabouts for an hour between 6am and 11pm every day for the next three months to allow random out-of-competition testing.)

When the whole world is undergoing the test, (Bindra says it is no big deal, he's been doing it for a long time now...), why not these people? I agree they think it is an invasion of privacy whatever...but heck, you're a celebrity! Of course you don't have privacy! And everybody in the media anyway knows where you are.


PS: A close runner up and something more...hmm..let's say "interesting" is this
