Shoaib Akhtar and Asif banned by PCB

The Pakistan Cricket Board today imposed a two-year ban on Shoaib Akhtar and a one-year ban on Mohammad Asif for a positive drug test.
The PCB's decision came after its Drugs Inquiry Tribunal delivered a 19-page statement detailing its findings. The ban means the two fast bowlers would not be able to play in the World Cup to be held in the Caribbean in March-April. Akhtar and Asif tested positive last month for banned steroid nandrolone in an internal dope test conducted by the PCB in the lead up to the Champions Trophy in India.
Akhtar, 31, has taken 165 test and 208 one-day wickets and broke the 100 mph barrier bowling at the 2003 World Cup. Asif, 23, is a relative newcomer to international cricket but has already taken 30 wickets in six tests. The duo were immediately withdrawn from the biennial event, which is in the semifinal stage.
