"Today's announcement, reminds all international cricketers that they remain personally responsible for ensuring that anything they eat, drink or put into their bodies does not result in an anti-doping rule violation," ICC General Manager – Cricket, Geoff Allardice said. "It further serves as a reminder to all international cricketers of the dangers and risks associated with taking supplements. "Before thinking about taking a supplement, cricketers should weigh up the risks and dangers of doing so and should fully research the supplement in question so they can make an informed decision." Shahzad has played 58 one-day internationals and 58 T20s for Afghanistan.
