Asif off to Australia

Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif has been sent to Australia by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to seek treatment for his nagging elbow injury.
Asif will meet with Dr Paul Allot, a specialist in sports medicine injuries, to decide if he requires surgery for his chronic joint problem.
"The purpose of sending him is to get a third opinion so that Asif can make a comeback free of this problem," a PCB spokesman said on Monday.
Asif is hoping to find the root cause of his injury, which ruled him out of the current tour of India.
"It has troubled me time and again for the last two years and it was terribly disappointing to miss the Indian tour," he said.
Asif, 24, has taken 51 wickets in 11 Tests.
