Muhammad Asifs doping appeal resumes on Nov 29

ISLAMABAD: Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif's doping
appeal will resume in Mumbai on Nov. 29.
“We have worked on legal and medical aspects of the case and hope that
after the Nov. 29 hearing the drug tribunal will reach some conclusion,”
Asif's lawyer, Shahid Karim, said Tuesday.
The PCB banned the right-arm fast bowler from playing international and
national cricket after he tested positive for the banned substance nandrolone
in the Indian Premier League in May.
Asif filed an appeal with an IPL drug tribunal, which comprises former
India captain Sunil Gavaskar, Dr. Ravi Bapat and lawyer Shirish Gupte. The
first hearing was held on Oct. 11 before it was adjourned.
“Evidences will be recorded during the Nov. 29 hearing and we will
present witnesses,” Karim said without going into detail.
Karim said it was important for Asif that the drug tribunal completes the
proceedings as quickly as possible.
“It's a matter of Asif's international career and we hope something
positive will come out after the hearing,” Karim said.
Both the “A” and “B” samples of Asif tested positive at a laboratory
accredited to the World Anti-Doping Agency, but with a different
concentration of nandrolone in each sample. Asif had not applied for a
therapeutic use exemption for the drug.
In June, on his way home from playing in the IPL, Asif was detained for 19
days in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, after authorities allegedly found a
substance containing opium in his wallet at the airport. Asf's doping appeal resumes on Nov. 29

without being charged for any offense.
In 2006, Asif and Pakistan paceman Shoaib Akhtar were pulled out of that
year's Champions Trophy after both tested positive for nandrolone during the
PCB's internal testing.
