Shoaib Akhtar and Asif tested positive for taking banned substances – What da….??


If we were already not biztified by Oval Test’s embarrassing episode, this naya karnaama is just great. Shoaib Akhtar and Muhammad Asif have been sent back to Pakistan after they were tested positive for banned substances. What in the world they are doing?

This is just too shameful. That’s it; I am putting a complete ban on whatever little cricket I have been watching. Say no to cricket, let’s turn our full attention to soccer and Manchester United :0)

    I don’t buy it, seriously. PCB, as it is at the moment (without any transparency), is hard to be trusted upon. Until it is proved (and the proof must be released to public), I reserve my final comments.

    I agree with Darwaish, between the moulvis and the dopers, the cricket team is going to the dogs. Rather watch some other entertaining sport.

    But its not the sport that really matters, it the image of pakistan propelled in the international media first as terrorist, than sportsman-sans spirit, and now its the national sport of addiction proudly presented to take what ever is left of national diginity to us.

    @Entrepreneur Balloon ~ 2: balloon sb, tests were conducted by a Malaysian Lab and that’s why i think PCB did the right thing by making it public right away. however, more than Asif and Shoaib, PCB and their medical staff is to be blamed for this. it’s their job to educate players who, unfortunately, happen to be too dumb and fools sometimes.

    @SADAFF: it’s not always that image of Pakistan “propelled” in Intl. Media. We as a nation has a lot to do with it too. perhaps sometimes looking into mirror is needed to correct yourself :)

    Hey all,

    This may seem tangential, but I have a request for anyone who could hep me out. I am a an arch. student at RPI (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute) in Troy, NY. I’m currently working a case study on lahore, but right now I’m at a stand still. I’m attempting to find high-quality pictures of the old city- not monuments, but rather living quarters, tight streets, esp those streets in which “the sun never shines.” Places like the illicit heera mandi. If anyone could help me out, it would be amazing. Thanks for even reading this.

    i hate cricket :P long boring game. a sports match should not waste all of your day. it should end in 3-4 hours max without a draw. i never understood how people find time to watch a 5 day test match which can end up as a draw !
