Asif's detention in Dubai to extend his ban

Lahore, Aug 9 (UNI) Pakistani pacer Mohammad Asif, who has been suspended by the PCB for failing a dope test in the IPL, will also be banned for some matches for his detention at the Dubai airport for the alleged possesion of a banned substance.

According to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) sources the report of the public prosecutor in Dubai had confirmed that Asif was carrying an illegal substance when he was detained at the airport.

''A PCB committee after going through the report found that their is enough evidence against Asif,'' the source said.

''The recommendation is that he should be banned for some matches to teach him a lesson and set an example for other players,'' the source added.

PCB Chairman Dr Nasim Ashraf will go through the report of the committee and will, then, call a meeting of the governing body to decide on the recommendations of the committee.
