Finally, the suspense and drama in the announcement of the player who tested positive in a random drug test during the IPL is over (seriously, we need to watch lesser reality shows). Being a cricket fan and someone who religiously following the IPL, I was so damn sure that it would be someone from the Bangalore Royal Challengers ! But alas, turns out that the Royal Challengers played so brilliantly without any drugs !
So the player turns out to be Mohammad Asif (yawn … ). Yeah the same player who was carrying a medical store with him in Dubai. To speak honestly, my heart goes out to Mr. Asif. Why ? Have a look at his figures during the IPL :
Player Mat Inns Overs Mdns Runs Wkts BBI Ave Econ SR
Mohammad Asif 8 8 32.0 0 296 8 2/19 37.00 9.25 24.0

I am reminded of the saying in Hindi “Khaya piya kuch nahi, gilas toda bara aana”.
Amit Varma of indiauncut.com has been actively putting forth a point that victimless crimes shouldn’t be punished. I second that, but I also hope it helps Mr. Asif get out of his situation.
P.S. : TOI states PCB leaves Asif high and dry. Very punny indeed.
