Pakistan spinner Abdul Rehman has failed a doping test during the English county championship while representing Somerset, an official of the Pakistan Cricket Board said Wednesday.

Rehman has been withdrawn from the Sialkot Stallions team which is scheduled to participate in next week's Champions League Twenty20 event in South Africa.
