CAS delays John Campbell's anti-doping appeal decision for a sixth time

By Kayon Raynor 
 
Seventeen months into his four-year ban for evading, refusing, or failing to submit to sample collection, John Campbell must wait for at least another two months, until May 31, for a decision from the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) into his appeal. 
 
This is an unprecedented sixth time that CAS has delayed revealing the cricketer's decision.
 
The latest delay was confirmed on Thursday by CAS, which communicated with both Campbell's and JADCO's legal teams.
 
The Switzerland-based court had promised to announce its decision on Thursday, March 28.
 
The CAS previously delayed their decision on August 31, 2023, October 31, 2023, December 19, 2023, January 18, 2024, and February 22, 2024.
 
Campbell's legal team had argued for up to a three-year reduction based on an overall assessment of the sanction provision and the mitigating factors in the case.
 
The left-handed Jamaican batsman learned of his four-year ban in October 2022 from the Jamaica Anti-Doping Independent Disciplinary Panel.
