Pakistan Medical Association To Fight For Shoaib, Asif

The Pakistan Medical Association (PMA) plans to move court against the bans handed to dope-tainted fast bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammed Asif.//

"The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has pleased the outside world and the International Cricket Council by banning Shoaib and Asif, but justice was not meted out to the two," PMA president Umer Ayub was quoted as saying in The News Monday.

On Wednesday, a specially constituted PCB tribunal had banned Shoaib for two years and Asif for one year from playing any class of cricket after it was confirmed that they had taken the banned steroid Nandrolone.

"We feel the ban is unjust, and if it is not lifted after appeals we will move to the court through our panel of lawyers, which also includes renowned lawyer Aitzaz Ahsan," said Ayub.

The PMA president also criticised the original three-member tribunal and said they were unqualified. Ayub said the bowlers were innocent and those connected with the Pakistani team should be blamed for the controversy.

"How can the doctors and trainers associated with the team be free of the blame? They should also be penalised and why blame the bowlers in a country like Pakistan where you can get every medicine without a prescription?" he asked.

Ayub said Australia banned spin bowler Shane Warne for only one year despite testing positive for a large quantity of banned diuretic.

"It's only in Pakistan where we punish our own people in a haphazard and unjust manner."
