The IPL (Indian Premier League) of late has confessed that Pakistani Cricketer Mohammad Asif has been convicted guilty as per the report conducted by IDTM, the independent laboratory in Sweden that conducts drug tests.
The IPL committee has also confirmed that a report has already been sent to the franchise of the player called Delhi Daredevils as well as to the Pakistan Cricket Board. The organizing committee has also announced that the 3 member IPL Drugs Tribunal committee will have Sunil Gavaskar along with a lawyer and a doctor. If Asif is found to be guilty, then severe action will be taken against him.
Some months ago, Asif was detained at the Dubai International Airport for carrying contraband drugs just after playing the IPL, famous T 20 cricket tournament in India. Thus this issue has become more critical now and the PCB has also constituted a 3-men committee to investigate the case of the Pak bowler.
