Mohammad Asif to Return to International Circuit against West Indies

Star Pakistani pacer Mohammad Asif is all set to return to international circuit after serving one year doping ban. Pakistan will face West Indies in their first match of Champions Trophy 2009 today and it is expected that the pacer will make his international come back through this game.

Mohammad Asif was banned from international cricket for a year as he was tested positive in a drug test during inaugural Indian Premier League (IPL). Following that incident, Asif was caught at the Dubai airport with illegal drug opium and was kept in custody for 19 days in Dubai.

Mohammad Asif broke into international circuit with Pakistan’s home test series against South Africa in January 2005. He did not take time to prove his talent and skill as a pacer. Because of his excellent line and length, and ability to swing the ball on both ways, he was soon compared with former Australian great Glenn McGrath. Now, let us see if Asif can make a strong come back against West Indies if he is given a chance. However, coach Younis Khan and Intikhab Alam have said that they are now expecting anything special from Mohammad Asif as it is his come back match.
