Karachi, Sept.8 (ANI): Pakistan Cricket authorities have advised tainted fast bowler Mohammad Asif to stop making ‘offensive’ statements against national players who are opposing his comeback , insisting that he should focus on the rehabilitation program provided by the PCB.
According to the Express Tribune, a PCB official said that the 32-year-old would have to accept the reactions to his comeback despite being served his ban after indulging in 2010 spot-fixing scandal.
The official added that it was quite visible from Asif’s remarks that he has not learnt much after his embarrassing act.
Earlier, disgraced Asif had lashed out at cricketers, who refused to play along with him, former skipper Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir, saying that who knows they might themselves not be in the squad in future.
The 32-year-old also said that it was not a team of a local village, where some players don’t want others to play. He said that Pakistan would choose them irrespective of their critics’ opinion about them.
The trio were found guilty of various offences of corrupt behavior relating to the Lords Test between England and Pakistan in 2010 and will be eligible for an international return in 2016 after going through a new Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) rehab programme. (ANI)
