My first suspect would be Asif since he left for Dubai from Mumbai after finishing IPL. He was in possession of drugs and was arrested.

2nd, Shoiab. He played in only couple of games and after this news of doping break out, he did not play....

I think BOTH. As soon as the random dope tests were announced during the IPL, Shoiab sat out of the next 2-3 matches even though he had destroyed Delhi.

I think Shoaib is the front runner here.

I feel Modi is giving business to the news channels , allowing them to talk about this before the person is named . They could have revealed the news later when the person is named by the WADA.

BTW, My bet is on Asif

IMO, except Ishant no indian bowler bowls that fast. And nobody requires drugs to maintain fitness and bowl at the of pace 125~130 kmph.

Yes I agree - even Kumble bowls at the same speed as Pathan and Munaf.

EDIT - Poll added.

@ N_C: IMO, you should have added one more option as "Both".

Seems like Asif it is though he says he does not have a clue why his name is involved. Maybe he is still under influence.

Asif tests positive, but IPL Organizers have bailed him out He may not be punished after all - IPL organisers breach rule by identifying player
