6.2.2 to assist the BCCI in profiling relevant parameters in a Cricketer’s urine, blood or other matrix, including DNA or genomic profiling, for anti-doping purposes.
Samples may be collected and stored for future analysis.
6.3 Restrictions on Use of Samples
6.3.1 All Samples provided by a Cricketer for the purposes of Testing under theRules shall be the property of the BCCI, and the BCCI shall be entitled to determine all matters regarding the analysis and disposal of such Samples at all times in accordance with the International Standards.

6.5 Further Analysis ofSamples
6.5.1 Any Sample may be subject to further analysis at any time before both the A and the B Sample analytical results (or A Sample result where the B Sample analysis has been waived or will not be performed) have been communicated by the BCCI to the Cricketer as the asserted basis for an Article 2.1 anti-doping rule violation.
6.5.2 Samples collected pursuant to the Rules may be stored and subjected to further analysis for the purposes described in Article 6.2 at any time exclusively at the direction of the BCCI or WADA.
