New Delhi:Oct 2006
Sent home from ICC Champions Trophy alongwith Shoaib Akhtar for testing positive for nandrolone.
Pakistan Cricket Board banned both bowlers, Akhtar for two years and Asif for one.
Ban overturned by a tribunal which showed leniency over Asif & Shoaib's 'lack of awareness'.
Asif & Shoaib pulled out of World Cup squad, PCB apparently feared they would fail dope tests.
Surprisingly named vice-captain for 3 ODIs in Abu Dhabi.
Detained in Dubai for 19 days for possessing a recreational drug, let off because of 'insignificance' of the offence.
Found to have failed a dope test during the IPL
