PCB wants Asif to play in Dubai, seeks ICC assistance

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is trying hard to help tainted fast bowler Mohammad Asifobtain clearance from the Dubai authorities to

enable him to play in the One-day series against New Zealand next month.

PCB chief Ijaz Butt said that the board has also approached ICC to ask the authorities to allow Asif to play in Dubai and Abu Dhabi during the series starting November 3. "We have sought ICC's assistance in this matter," the Daily Times quoted Butt, as saying.

Asif was banned from entering the United States of Emirates (UAE) after he was detained for 19 days at the Dubai International Airport last year for possessing a banned substance.

The PCB had also slapped a fine of one million rupees on Asif for his Dubai ‘misadventure'.
