Shoib Akhtar & Md. Asif fail drugs test

Controversy reigned supreme again in Pakistan cricket and brought the ICC Champions Trophy under a(nother) cloud of controversy.

Pakistan's star players Shoib Akhtar & Mohammad Asif, both returning from injuries and on medication tested positive for the Nandralone.

With this news out of the Malaysian lab coming out, both players have now been sent back to Pakistan.

While coach Woolmer and captain Younis Khan may give them benefit of doubt it remains to be seen how with doctors, fitness trainers, coaches and dieticians available at the push of a button to these players they could possibly & accidently consume the substance from medicine.

Professional atheletes must be more than aware of what they put into their system.
