Shoaib and Asif Banned
November 1, 2006 1 Comment
“Shoaib Akhtar has been banned from cricket for two years and Mohammad Asif for one, after being found guilty by the Pakistan Cricket Board of using the banned substance, nandrolone.”
Well what can one say? PCB has just destroyed any chances Pakistani team had in the World Cup. First the poor handling of players, the oval test disaster and now this , PCB has just ruined a very well knitted Pakistani team. May be the decision was right but harsher from the commitee.but PCB should have had awareness to stop occurance of such event in the first place.
Well this ban surely means end of shoaib career, and 1 year break from international and domestic cricket will surely also take sting out of Asif as well.
