LAHORE - The Pakistan Cricket Board is likely to include dope-tainted fast bowler Mohammad Asif in the 30-member preliminary squad for this September's ICC Champions Trophy, sources said on Saturday. In another important development, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has said it would not raise any objection against Asif's inclusion once he completes his doping ban. The ICC said that once Asif completes his one-year ban (that ends on September 22), he will be eligible to play in any international event including the Champions Trophy to be held in South Africa. The Champions Trophy will begin on September 24. A top PCB official said that Asif is very much likely to be named in the 30-man provisional squad for the Champions Trophy. The announcement for preliminary squad is likely to be made on July 23. The 26-year-old was banned last year after he tested positive for banned anabolic steroid nandrolone while featuring in the Indian Premier League (IPL). It is also worth a mention that Asif was fined Rs one million for concealing important information for his Dubai sojourn where he was detained for 19 days over possession of a small quantity of opium. The PCB also announced that Asif will be eligible for national duty after his one-year ban for doping expires.
