Asif arrested

The soap opera which is Pakistani cricket continues. Drug cheat/fast bowler Mohammad Asif has just been arrested in Dubai. According to the Pakistan Board of Control he is being detained on "suspicion of possessing drugs". Early reports quoted PCB officials as saying that Asif was found with opium. As you can imagine heroin possession is not treated very lightly in Dubai.

Because this is a cricketer from Pakistan we are talking about, the drama does not stop there. Asif now appears to be simultaneously claiming that the drugs were planted by airport officials, and that they are an innocent medicine for sore elbows that he has been carrying around in his wallet for months.
