Mohammad Asif Faces Monetary Fine, not Ban

(This entry was originally published on Monday, March 2nd, 2009)

Pakistani pacer Mohammad Asif has been out of international cricket for more than six months now due to suspension imposed on him as he was arrested in Dubai airport last June for carrying opium while coming back from India to Pakistan after taking part in Indian Premier League 2008. Pakistan Cricket Board has formed a three-member investigation committee which will probe into the case and submit its recommendation by the end of March. Reports out in the media suggest that the committee might impose any ban on Asif, rather it would recommend PCB to impose a monetary fine on the bowler.

Asif is one of the key bowlers for Pakistan at this moment and his absence in Pakistan squad decreases the squad strength and this is perhaps the reason for which PCB inquiry committee intends not to ban him for any duration. Well, I also think that PCB should not ban him from international cricket because the player has already been out of cricket for a number of months now and there is no need to hand him a ban from international cricket.
