Pakistan leg-spinner Yasir Shah has been provisionally suspended after testing positive for a banned substance, the International Cricket Council has announced.

The 29-year-old provided a sample which was found to contain chlortalidone, a banned diuretic, following Pakistan’s second one-day international against England in Abu Dhabi on November 13.

Shah has been charged with a breach of the ICC’s anti-doping code and will face disciplinary proceedings.

A statement from the ICC added: “In accordance with the ICC Anti-Doping Code, pending the outcome of the disciplinary process, Yasir has been provisionally suspended.”

Shah, who has played 12 Tests and 15 ODIs, bowled nine overs in the match but did not take any wickets as England won by 95 runs.
