Just over a month after being handed a one-year ban, Jamaica and West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell may still find himself in a spot of bother.

According to a report, the Executive Director of the Jamaica Anti-Doping Commission (JADCO) Carey Brown has confirmed that the commission has filed an appeal with the 5-member local Independent Appeals Tribunal chaired by Justice Carl Harrison.

The report noted that JADCO is pushing for the maximum 2-year ban for Russell after the Independent Anti-Doping Disciplinary Panel chaired by Attorney Hugh Faulkner handed the cricketer a one-year ban in January for three whereabouts filing failures within seven months in 2015.

The report further noted that Patrick Foster Q.C is again representing Russell while customary prosecuting attorney Lackston Robinson continues to present JADCO’s case.

May 8 and 9 are the dates set for the appeal hearings.
