    The right thing happened the wrong way

    Well nature has a way of doing justice. Shoiab and Asif both should have missed the world cup but not like this, by getting banned for an year each. But PCB tried to kepp them safe and away from justice just to play thier trump cards in the World cup. But look eventually they missed it. PCB had a option of doing the right thing and earn the respect of the cricket world but they didnt.

    There is a famous story that Once Hazrat Ali (companion of the Holy Prophet) was travelling but on his way the time offer Asar(evening) prayers began. So he had to stop and decided to pray right there. There was a man standing by on the raod. He asked that man to look after that horse while he is praying. That man agreed. Ali decided (in his heart) that he would pay that man 2 dirhams once he is done praying. But he turned around to find out that the man wasnt there and the saddle on his horse was missing(stolen). Ali went to the nearest Bazar to buy another one, he stopped at a shop and saw his saddle being sold over there. Ali inquired to the shop keeper about how much the saddle is and where did he get it from. The shop keeper told Ali that a man came here a few minutes ago and sold it to him for 2 dirhams.

    Moral of the story is that life is not about what you earn but how you earn it. What you will earn has already been destined for you, we are just here to make the choices.

    If Shoaib and Asif had been caught with nandrolone still in their system (unacceptable levels, of course) they could have, in all likelihood, been banned from the sport for life. It's not as simple as a year-long pat on the wrist.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I know but they should have recieved a one-year ban when they were caught the first time 7 months ago. Now PCB lost thier respect and intergrity, the players didnt play anyway and now they wil be targetted by ICC too

    But the good thing is that if pakistan does something worthy of talk then no one will say they had cheats in thier team.

    No, they should've had 2 year bans for the first offence.

    Unless that worthy thing is another player or two failing the dope testing in the Caribbean.

    I'm really hoping nothing worse happens to Pakistani cricket right now though. Because most things that can go wrong have.

    Firstly it wasn't a similar offence.

    Secondly where did I mention Warne's ban as being correct?

    It was an internal drug test. They can do whatever the hell they want with the results.

    It had nothing to do wiht the ICC.

    Why the results were released to the media i don't know .
