India Test opener Prithvi Shaw has been suspended until November 15, 2019 for a doping violation. A BCCI release said Shaw had "inadvertently ingested a prohibited substance, which can be commonly found in cough syrups."

Not picked in the Test squad for the upcoming West Indies tour because of a hip injury, Shaw will also not be allowed to participate in the home Tests against South Africa in October as well as the first Test against Bangladesh, which begins on November 14.

Shaw had provided a urine sample as part of the BCCI's anti-doping testing programme on the day of the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy match against Punjab on February 22 in Indore.
