Shah was suspended last month after his "A'' sample contained a banned substance - chlortalidone - which is on the World Anti-Doping Agency prohibited list.

Local reports say Shah took his wife's blood pressure medication without knowing that it contained the banned substance.

During his suspension Shah cannot participate in any international match or games organized by the PCB or its affiliated members.
