Asif clears things up

Top ten reasons provided by Asif to WADA Anti-Doping Tribunal:

10. Ammi (my mother) told me it would keep off evil spirits

9. Wasimbhai said it would help me keep one side shiny

8. Kamran and I were out one night, and he challenged me to have just one sip

7. Geoffbhai said it helped him improve his eyesight

6. Saeed Anwar said it would help me concentrate during namaaz

5. Shoaib put it in my coffee

4. Everybody was doing it at the Bollywood party I went to

3. Virubhai said that this was a Najafgarh delicacy worth trying

2. Akshay Kumar told me it was how he got to look so buff

1. Lalitsaab said that all IPL players had to drink this otherwise they would be banned like the ICL players

I have a sneaky suspicion it was actually

"4. Everybody was doing it at the Bollywood party I went to"

Small town kid from Pakistan with the glitz and glamor of Bollywood. And, I know for a fact that the IPL stars attended a lot of parties.

I was writing tongue-in-cheek obviously. Given that he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug, I don't think he got it at a Bollywood party (those would be more likely to supply a joint being passed around). And incidentally, I don't buy the small-town-kid story line.

JRod: Aha, so it was a blue pill?

You know who likes blue pills...

Do you like to fight injustice?

Yes, that is truly an exceptional quality you have.

I wont rule out Bollywood supplying PEDs to Asif. Strong rumours suggest that the use of 'roids and HGH to enhance looks, add muscle is pretty rampant among the stars.

Perhaps SRK with his buffed body can clarify matters!

SP: very random indeed.

Excuse no. 10 reminds me very much of a certain Mr. Warne's excuse. Hehe.

Q: I'm puzzled by the whole thing. I'm very interested in finding out what drug it was. Glad you liked the list!

CR: I think that was my original inspiration. I loved it then, I love it now.
