Montreal: Troubled Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif's cup of woes is threatening to spill over with the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) urging the PCB to take action against the pacer.

''The ICC will come in trouble if no action is being initiated against the bowler by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB),'' Director General, WADA, David Howman, told mediapersons here.

''Though the Pakistan board has not signed directly with the WADA, but the ICC has and being a member of the ICC, the PCB has to do something for this,'' he added.

''At present we are not immediately writing a 'warning letter' to the ICC but would wait for them to initiate in this matter.'' Asif was detained at the Dubai airport last week after a banned substance was recovered from his wallet.
