Doosra: Mohammed Asif walks free in Dubai

By John Cheeran
Finally what has been a wild guess turned out to be true in the end.
Pakistan fast bowler Mohammed Asif finally walked free, marking the end of his detention by authorities in Dubai since June 1 for the illegal possession of opium.
The Pakistan bowler will be spared the legal rigmarole in Dubai as the Dubai authorities are keen to get rid of the guy, and will deport the errant youngster to his home country as early as possible.
This is not the first time justice has taken such sudden turns, much like a doosra that cricket is familiar with.
Enjoy your second innings, Asif.
And as soon as you reach Pakistan take another long, hard look at your wallet before throwing it away.
Kuda Hafiz!

I don't think Asif would get time to look at other things once he lands in Pakistan. Reason, WADA and PCB are ready to greet him with further commissions and tribunals...his woe has only begun.

Lot has changed since he was detained and maybe you would like what I feel about it in my blog Doosra. Do have a look at
