T20 WORLD CUP: Mohammad Rizwan injected with a banned substance by the Doctors
As said Rizwan didn’t know about the injection he was treated with, the player learned about the medication only after he gained consciousness.
As soon as he was conscious enough to understand the situation, doctors told Rizwan that he was not able to breathe and they have to get permission from ICC to inject this medicine to help him recover.
As a matter of fact, this is usually off-limits for athletes, but since there are no other options available, the Drs had to make decisions on their hands. This is how Dr’s made Rizwan understand how they got permission from the International Criminal Court to inject this drug.
