Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif fail drugs tests

Off their mash on ecstacy pipes. That's the verdict. All whacked-up on goofballs.

There's nothing too specific being said at present. Both Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif have failed dope tests and are being sent home to Pakistan. It seems likely that if drugs were being used, it was to aid recovery from injury. The tests were carried out in September when both Shoaib and Asif were just returning to action.

Cricinfo have referred to comments made by former senior PCB medical staff which alluded to steroid use as part of Shoaib's recovery.

Some form of the full story will appear over the next few days. Currently the samples are being re-tested.

they have alluded to comments. probably just part of a public relations cover up. why were the sent home if the samples are being retested? they should have been allowed to stay till the second confirmation came.

shoaib's doctor is already coming out proclaiming his patient's innocense

There's a 'helpful' article in the Sun today that has photos of Shoaib 'lean and mean' in 1999 and 'bulked up and muscular' in a vest in 2004. Aside from the fact that he is scowling and unshaven in the latter pic, just to prove how unhinged and 'roided-up he is, he actually just looks fat and out of shape in the 2004 photo.
