Asif says he is owed money by Delhi IPL team

Asif says he is owed money by Delhi IPL team

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif claims he is owed money by the Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League and will leave for India on Thursday to try and resolve the issue.
"I will be meeting with Delhi Daredevils officials because some of my dues were not paid," Asif told The Associated Press on Wednesday.
Asif represented the Daredevils in the inaugural twenty20 IPL last year before he was embroiled in two drugs controversies.
Asif was first detained at Dubai Airport for 19 days after 0.24 grams of opium were found in his wallet, and he later acknowledged using the drug in Pakistan four months before he visited the United Arab Emirates.
He then tested positive for the steroid nandrolone while competing in the IPL.
However, the fast bowler appealed his ban at an IPL drug tribunal and his next hearing is due on Jan. 24 in Mumbai, India.
The previous management of the Pakistan Cricket Board suspended Asif from playing domestic and international cricket until he was cleared by the IPL.
"My visit to Delhi has nothing to do with my appeal at the (IPL) drug tribunal," Asif said. "I might come back to Pakistan after two days in New Delhi and then fly back to Mumbai for the hearing. It all depends how long I will be staying in New Delhi to resolve my financial issues with Delhi Daredevils."
On Tuesday, Pakistan politicians asked the PCB to investigate Asif's detention in the UAE and take action against him.
