Two Pakistani cricket players were banned when they failed a drug test. It's only interesting because Muslims pay lip service to clean living
, while Muslim countries are leading the world in the drug trade and drug usage is rampant in Islamic life. BBC Sport, Pakistan pair hit by doping bans:
Pakistan fast bowlers Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif have been banned from all international and domestic cricket for failing a drugs test.
Shoaib, 31, will serve a two-year ban and Asif, 23, will be unable to play for 12 months after testing positive for nandrolone, a banned steroid.
The pair waived their right to have tests on their B samples carried out.
"After a thorough inquiry we feel they failed to prove their innocence," said tribunal chairman Shahid Hamid.
"The process of doping was investigated carefully. We made sure the tests were conducted properly, samples reached the laboratory in Malaysia safely and there was no error in testing in the laboratory.
"Both the players were satisfied and accepted the tests and gave their point of view but after a thorough inquiry and bound by the Wada (World Anti-Doping Agency) and the International Cricket Council (ICC) we reached the decision."
