    Actually I am one of the supporters of the ICL league and have always criticized the way BCCI has handled it, but to accuse them of selectively conspiring against PCB is untrue.

    And you are so spot on Yousuf, The guy is a joke.

    And now, they want back-dating.

    Dont these folks not know what rules mean? Or do rules mean nothing to these folks? As it is, the guy got off very lightly..

    The nature of our cricketing neighbor is such that they would not directly say anything
    about it but they will go to other boards and tell them to demand Pak to not to play
    ICL players when they Play with those countries...talk about Baghal Main chuuri Moun pay Raam Raam


    It will be very interesting to see Pak opening in T20 WC this year with Nazir in side...that will piss a lot of people in BCCI
    You talk as if Pakistan is being singled out to ban their ICL players. When will you guys learn that everything is not about Pakistan or the PCB but about the ICL.

    Yousuf was always a crass opportunist - first the religion make over , then the ICL to IPL shift back to ICL and now...

    Glad someone had the good sense to see through and overlooked him for the captaincy post - no ethics or principles whatsoever

    What crap is this?

    Just because someboody changes their religon you do not assume they are doing it for some material gains.

    FTR Yousuf only games as captain has come as Yo Yo rather then as Mo Yo so religon has nothing to do with his captaincy ambitions.

    religion is minor and his choice - his flip flop and the crazy press statements justifying his current stanceon ICP/IPL is amazing and that people with a vested interest are also swallowing it

    Karachi: A renowned Pakistani knee specialist has refused to treat Shoaib Akhtar in a bid to keep his 'reputation intact', a leading Pakistani newspaper Jang reported Monday.

    The newspaper quoted a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) official on the condition of anonymity claiming the doctor told Shoaib that "I'm regarded among the best surgeons in the country and cannot put my reputation at stake by treating you because your international career is filled with controversies".Shoaib, 33, was asked to undergo a knee surgery by PCB's medical experts. The fast bowler has floating debris in his knee and needs an operation to recover from the injury.

    However, Shoaib said earlier this month that he has recovered from the injury without undergoing any operation as doctors have taken out the floating bones from his injured knee with the help of injections.

    The fast bowler also expressed his wish to play for Pakistan in the one-day series against Australia in Dubai and Abu Dhabi from April 22-May 7.

    However, the national team management is not convinced and wants Shoaib to undergo extensive fitness tests before taking a final decision on his inclusion in the 15-man squad for the series that will include five one-day internationals and a Twenty20 game.

    It's an odd one. Giving the benefit of doubt, he's worried that Akhtar will take a zillion drugs while being treated and he'll be implicated. Telling the truth, he either can't help him or can't be arsed.

    To be honest the latter might solve more problems than the former.

    Asif the menace

    Mohammad Asifs Latest Scandal
    http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/defaul..._4-4-2009_pg2_5

    LAHORE: It seems that Pakistan’s fast bowler Mohammad Asif and controversies are made for each other. Asif, who is already facing a one-year ban from the Indian Premier League (IPL) for failing a drug test, has been accused as ‘home-wrecker’. According to reports, film actor Babrak Shah has alleged that Asif destroyed his happy marital life with TV and film actress Veena Malik. “I was happily married to Veena when Asif ‘interrupted’ my married life by starting wooing Veena and he succeeded,” Babrak has been quoted as saying. Babrak said he had divorced Veena on March 31 in presence of Asif. “Yes I divorced her when I realised that Veena was not mending her ways and started having an affair with Asif,” he added. Asif, who has played 11 Tests and 31 ODIs, is not new to controversies. Ever since making his international debut, highly talented Asif has plunged from one controversy to another that has undermined his career. Last year in June he was detained at the Dubai International Airport for 19 days for carrying a small quantity of opium in his wallet when he was on his way back to Pakistan from Mumbai. The tall speedster was banned, along with fellow pacer Shoaib Akhtar, for testing positive for a banned anabolic steroid nandrolone just before the ICC Champions Trophy on October 16, 2006. It resulted in a two-year suspension for Akhtar and a one-year suspension for Asif in November 2006, though they were later acquitted later by a Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) appellate tribunal.
