    Saw this coming tbh. PCB were never going to keep the ban. Just make it look like they were cracking down, but I bet they say they both had good reasons.

    Utterly ridiculous in my opinion, they did the crime and so they should do the time. Shane Warne "claimed" he didn't know he has taking illegal drugs and he got banned, why is it different for these two? The Pakistan Cricket Board are "corrupt" for want of a better word, saw it coming though because there was no way they would've deprived Pakistan of their two best bowlers.

    Doesn't bother me tbh. Thought the original bans were an overreaction and would rather this than that.

    Agree with you partially on this being a bad decision.

    But Decision was made by a saperate tribunal bot by PCB, and cant be compared with Warne as i am unaware as if Wanrne appealed against his case, as these guys did appeal after the first punishment was announced!

    I persoanlly would hve loved to see Shoaib out...............but i dont mind seeing him back either, I Know its confusing, Sorry!!!

    I half expected the appeals to be successful, though I thought it would be on the basis of the PCB not adhering to the prescribed method viz-a-viz their testing procedure. Is that the defence that has been accepted? The BBC article kinda implies the tribunal might have accepted the defence that they didn't know they were taking these substances... Which seems a bit ridiculous, particularly in Akhtar's case.

    I think the PCB screwed themselves in trying to deal with this themselves, out of fear perhaps that the ICC would be even harsher on the players concerned.

    I believe this was planned by PCB all along. Ban them first to make it look like they care, but then have the ban lifted so it doesn't hurt them in the world cup. I have lost more respect for PCB after this incident.

    If You belived it, Then Why in the freaking hell you did not tell us all when this whole saga started?


    If i belive you for a Minute, then you probably also know the result of upcoming SA Inda Test series, Would you like to share that now or come back at end of the series and tell us that you knew what was happening before the first test!

    WOW I AM SO HAPPY I CANT describe, the levels of that drug in shoaib were in significant, this is just great for pakistan cricket, now it reall boosts thier cahnces in the world cup

    shoaib is the most entertaining bowler in cricket and really what sad way it woudl have been to leave

    i am confident these guys didnt take any drugs to actually increase thier performance
    if the drugs were taken to heal quicker, i think the alloted punishment was a bit too hard, i mean players are able to get away with alot of other thigs in sport, and its not liek shoaibs been bowling consistnetly over 100 mph

    ALso i expected this aswell, however ididnt they think they would actually get banned and then have thier sentences over turned, i felft that pcb would make noise by assusing them, and when i heard that pcb was in charge of the investigation, i knew that there was a big chance shoaib and asif would get off the hook.

    jus great for cricket

    Erm, what? Did I say I know for sure, or I knew that when the ban was placed?
