Thanks to reader FN for passing this news along. According to The Nation, Shoaib Akhtar and Mohammad Asif are being called back from the Champions Trophy squad because there are "apprehensions" about them testing positive for steroids. No other source is carrying anything on this story, but I have little reason to doubt its veracity, simply because no idiot would make up a story that would be so easily falsifiable. Very simply, if Shoaib and Asif are returning home tomorrow, we'll know why.

I will write more on this later on tonight. Stay tuned.
