Pakistan Cricketer Mohammad Asif Out of Delhi Daredevils Contract

Pakistani pacer Mohammad Asif has successfully come out of his 3 year-deal with IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils. The pacer is currently going through a bad face of time as he is under scrutiny of IPL drug tribunal. Last year he was suspended by the former PCB administration after he was found positive in a drug test. Now, IPL drug tribunal is looking into the case and the first hearing of Asif was held in October last year and the next hearing is due on January 24, 2009 in Mumbai since he was arrested at Dubai airport in June last year for possessing Opium.

The pacer signed up for Delhi Daredevils on a three year contract worth US$ 650,000, and thus, becoming the second most expensive player of Indian Premier League from Pakistan. No doubt, he is going through a very tough time at this moment as he is out of international cricket for about six months. However, the pacer is now confident to retain his place in the Pakistan squad and he said that he would work toward this goal. About the reason of getting out of the IPL contract which had two more years to expire. He said that he was going through some problems off the field and he is trying to sort out those problems before concentrating on cricket. However, he said that his only goal is to play cricket for Pakistan and he wants to retain his place in the national side again. Now, let us see if Asif can come out of all these problems and start playing for Pakistan again.
