The head of Britain's anti-doping program has warned the cricket authorities they would be naive if they thought the sport did not have a drugs problem. Michele Verokken, director of UK Sports Council's program, said the International Cricket Council should have its own worldwide testing system rather than rely on individual countries operating their own.

"You don't know you have a problem until you actually try and assess whether the problem exists," Verokken said, reacting to reports that the ICC does not plan to bring in drug testing at the World Cup in England in May and June.
