Dubai: Pakistani paceman Mohammed Asif, along with his advocates, appeared before the Dubai court today. After hearing the recommendations from the prosecutors, the court has adjourned without taking any decisions.

A decision is expected later today or tomorrow as the Attorney General takes up the matter. "The public prosecutor has completed his proceedings in today's hearing," Mansoor Suhail, the PCB media director, was quoted as saying by Cricinfo.

"He has provided his report to the Attorney General and he will then take further action either later today or tomorrow," he said.

He, however, did not disclose whether the prosecutors have levelled any charges on the player who was caught with contraband items at the Dubai airport on his arrival from Mumbai on June 1. If convicted, he could face a sentence of up to four years.
