ICL: Indian Cricket League

Asif frustrated by case delay


Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Asif said on Tuesday he was anxiously waiting for a hearing before an Indian doping tribunal so he can clear his name.

Asif, 25, faces a two-year ban after he tested positive for the banned steroid nandrolone during the IPL competition held between April and June of this year.

“I am anxiously waiting to put my case before the IPL tribunal because I want to get my name cleared and return to where I belong,” Asif told AFP.

“I am confident that I will get cleared on the basis of discrepancies in the quantity, but the first thing is to get a hearing where I could prove myself,” he added.

The tribunal, comprising former India captain Sunil Gavaskar, doctor Ravi Bapat and lawyer Shirish Gupte, asked Asif to appear on August 30, but the paceman asked them to push it back.

The decision of the body, which is under the aegis of the International Cricket Council, would apply to both national and international cricket.
