ISLAMABAD (AP) — Pakistan test cricketer Ahmed Shehzad was banned for four months for unspecified doping.

Shehzad “had no intent to cheat or enhance his performance,” the Pakistan Cricket Board said in a statement on Friday.

Shehzad was provisionally suspended on July 10 for a positive test following a domestic match. The PCB did not elaborate. It said his four-month suspension started from July 10.

Shehzad has played 13 tests, 81 one-day internationals, and 57 Twenty20s for Pakistan, and has scored centuries in all three formats.
