Default Is Pakistan Still Fighting With The Ghosts of Shoaib and Asif?

Pakistan lost the tournament opener but still has got all the potential to win the cup. Now, what they need is to regroup and forget the drug test dilemmas which have already costed much.

I am quoting here few paragraphs of an article about this.

Pakistan started their World Cup campaign in a way which many cricket pundits including former Pakistani cricketers have anticipated. A dismal display with bowling and fielding, a submissive batting and lack of composure, these are the words which only can tell the one side of a sorry Pakistan side. A 54 run defeat in the World Cup opener might open the tin worm Pakistan was trying hard to hide.
When every other participating teams were fully concentrating on the build-up of the mega cricketing event, Pakistan was busy in covering up the drug test stories and kept everyone guessing about the inclusion of Shoaib and Asif in the squad. They apparently failed to turn up in the official drug tests but it was speculated that PCB conducted secret tests on them which they failed.
While Ramiz was more annoyed with the players involved, other Pakistani greats slammed PCB for poor handing of the doping scandal and eventually destroying the morale of the team. After Javed Miandad’s strong criticism, now Pakistan’s all time legend Imran Khan showed his dismay and came hard on PCB. According to Imran, PCB has messed up the entire dope test issue concerning fast bowler Mohammad Asif and star pacer Shoaib Akhtar.
