Pakistan’s Fast Bowler Asif cleared to enter in UAE: Pakistani fast bowler Mohammed Asif, who was banned to enter in UAE due to possessing illegal drugs, has been cleared after three years.
Pakistan cricket board (PCB) filed an appeal against his ban. Now, the UAE government has informed the pacer through PCB that he has been cleared to enter in UAE states.
Mohammed Asif was arrested in 2008 at Dubai international airport by Airport Security Force (ASF) on recovery of illegal drugs while he was on his way back to Pakistan after playing Indian Premier League (IPL) in India, a private news channel reported.
He was kept imprisoned for many days in a Dubai jail. Later, the government deported Asif from Dubai and placed a ban on his entry for a lifetime in all states of UAE.
Now after lifting of ban as soon as he is acquitted from spot-fixing case, he is allowed to play in Dubai.
The PCB has formally conveyed the clearance to Asif.
