London, Sept.19 (ANI): West Indies batsman Xavier Marshall has been dumped from the megabucks Stanford Twenty20 match after failing a drugs test.
Tonito Willett, another member of the Stanford SuperStars, was also axed for a doping offence.
It means their hopes of winning the 565,000-pound-a-man prize money in Antigua have gone up in a puff of smoke.
According to The Sun, the pair were tested during a Windies training camp. It is believed the drugs were recreational.
West Indies Board chief executive Donald Peters said: We have a zero tolerance on drugs. (ANI)
