Lahore, Nov 21 (ANI): PCB has reportedly slapped a whopping bill on suspended Pakistani fast bowler Mohammad Asif for the legal costs incurred for his release from detention in Dubai earlier this year.

Asif was detained at the Dubai airport for 19 days for carrying a drug-like substance.

Following his detention, the Board had hired the legal firm Afridi and Angel to represent him in the case contested with the Dubai police.

According to The News, Asif was shaken by the demand, as the bill was in thousands of dirhams.

After the PCB made the demand, Asif has told the PCB that the representative of the Board Nadeem Akram, sent to assist him in Dubai in June, had bothered to visit him just once at the detention centre during his stay in Dubai.

Meanwhile, Asif has also submitted an application to the present PCB Chairman Ejaz Butt for release of money due to him as per his central contract with the Board. (ANI)
