The Perth Scorchers have been made aware that Laurie Evans tested positive for a banned substance.
The Club is disappointed to learn of Evans’ positive anti-doping test result relating to a sample provided in August 2022.
Evans was retained by the Scorchers in the Gold round of the inaugural KFC BBL|12 Draft.
Due to the circumstances, the Scorchers and Laurie and his management have decided to mutually terminate his contract for the 2022-23 KFC Big Bash League season.
The Club will explore its options to source a replacement player for the tournament, which begins on Saturday 17 December against the Sydney Sixers at Optus Stadium.
