Any badminton association that was signed up to WADA code should not allow her to play in their events AFAIK. If they do allow then WADA will surely complain strongly. The idea of Bans are they exclude the athlete from all competition.
If Sairul passed his B test then there is no issue, he would be cleared.

Zhou Mi: I did not take banned drugs knowingly
BEIJING: Suspended shuttler Zhou Mi has denied knowingly taking any banned substances to improve on her sporting performance and she would make an appeal against a two-year suspension.
The Badminton World Federation (BWF) had announced last Saturday that the former world No.1 was tested positive for clenbuterol, an anabolic agent on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s list of prohibited substances.”
“I received the penalty on Sept 1 and this was due to the result of an out-of-competition doping programme that I had done on June 28,” said Zhou Mi in a statement posted on Sina.com on Sunday.
“Throughout my over 20 years in a badminton career, I had passed all my doping tests and have not thought of using any improper way to enhance my results. I don’t know how this could have happened to me.”
Zhou Mi, who represents Hong Kong after leaving the China national team in 2007, acknowledged that the only substance that she had taken and could possibly lead to the problem was an over-the-counter medicine to treat flu during the Singapore and Indonesian Opens.
She was knocked out in the first round in both tournaments.
The Guangxi-born shuttler was a bronze medallist in the 2004 Athens Olympics and gold medallist at the 2002 Busan Asian Games.

To be honest I was very shocked to hear this news. Indian media initially reported just "previously top ranked player Mi", and I kept saying hope this is not Mi Zhou.
But given she was a very senior player she should have been very careful. Given the dirty doping cases we keep on hearing, a sports reputation is on stake unless the governing body takes some drastic measures.
Sad day for her and badminton.

I hope that Zhou Mi will not say "The end is here"
This thread is titled "The end is here".
It reminds me of the song "My way"; which starts with "And now, the end is near".
I hope that Zhou Mi will not say "The end is here"; but "The end is near".
Hope that Zhou Mi will still stay with Badminton for many years to come.
