Mohammad Asif

The 33-year-old tainted Pakistani medium pacer Mohammad Asif has served  five years of suspension in any form of cricket. Now Pakistan cricket has freed him and let him play in domestic cricket. But after the domestic cricket in Pakistan, he left for Norway to play domestic cricket there.

“One of my friends called me to ask me to come. There’s good weather for training,” Asif told Cricinfo.

Asif is playing for Christiania Cricket Club in Oslo.

Asif was banned from cricket for spot-fixing at the Lord’s Test against England in 2010.  He was banned by International Cricket Council in February 2011 and sent to prison in Vomvers of the same year following a criminal trial at Southwark Crown Court.

Asif served a one year and six months of the sentence.

Along with Asif then Pakistan captain  Salman Butt, Mohammad Amer were also sentenced. But Amer was pardoned because of  his young age.

He was 18 at the time of the offense. He is now playing for Pakistan in the four-Test series against England starting on 14 July.

The right-hand bowler wants to be fit before the start of the new domestic season in Pakistan, which starts in September and says he is “100 % sure” he will play international cricket again.

Asif also believes he will find his place in Pakistan team again before the tour of Australia and New Zealand in December.

He added: “Hopefully I will do well in Pakistan and get selected for the national team for the tours to New Zealand and Australia.”
