Zimbabwe Cricket has suspended two players from all cricket activities.

The two, Blessed Muzite and Brighton Chipungu who play for Scorpions and Takashinga Patriots 2 respectively were suspended after testing positive for marijuana during an in-house doping test.

They are set to appear before a disciplinary hearing soon.

Muzite and Chipungu are the second pair to be suspended by the national cricket board this year, following Brandon Mavuta and Wesley Madhevere who were handed a four-month ban for the same offence in February this year.

Doping amongst Zimbabwean athletes remains a challenge, at the present moment the government through the Ministry of Sport Recreation Arts and Culture is drafting an Integrity Bill which aims at dealing with the drug issue in sports.
