Indian Cricket League beckons Asif
Embattled Pakistan speedster Mohammad Asif has been offered to play in the unsanctioned Indian Cricket League.
The pacer could snap his ties with the IPL because of the rigours of going through a tribunal for his appeal against a doping ban.
The Pakistan Cricket Board has withdrawn legal support sought by Asif to fight his case as he is to appear before the tribunal on November 29. The distraught fast bowler is now considering a move to the ICL, website Cricketnirvana has learnt.
"When no one is coming to my support I have no other option left to join the ICL for which other Pakistani players are also playing. My career has come to a halt and no one is bothering," Asif was quoted as saying.
It's also learnt that the Lahore Badshahs, who won the recently concluded edition of the ICL, are planning to sign more Pakistani players.
However, newly appointed Pakistan coach Intikhab Alam had recently expressed his desire to have Asif back in the national side as he was a proven match winner.
