Kumble nominated to anti-doping panel

December 19, 2008 11:16 IST

India's former cricket skipper Anil Kumble has been nominated to the athletes' committee of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).

The leg spinner, who retired last month as the third highest Test wicket-taker with 619 wickets, has been included in the list announced on the WADA website (www.wada-ama.org).

Kumble's term will start on January 1.

One-third of the panel members, who play an advisory role in policy and priority development of the agency, are replaced on a rotational basis annually.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is a signatory to the WADA Code.
