Karachi: Dope-tainted seamer Mohammad Asif has requested the IPL authorities and World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) to postpone his 'B' sample test, to next month so as to strengthen his defence in the case and to arrange for travel documents.

Asif's lawyer Shahid Kazmi today said the pacer was yet to receive the required documents from the IPL authorities relating to 'A' sample test, without which he could not make preparations for the case.

''From the IPL we certainly want the documents that relate to the procedures they adopted for the 'A' sample test and we are entitled to have them. We also want certain documents from the Pakistan Cricket Board that might be relevant to the case,'' Kazmi said.

''We will also not be able to make all arrangements by July 28.

The visas have to be processed and documents have to be obtained,'' he said.

Kazmi, however, refrained from saying anything about the banned steroid nandrolone for which Asif was tested positive.

''I can't confirm because we don't have all the documents. I really don't consider this very relevant because if they say they have adverse analytical finding in the sample 'A' test that means they found some prohibited substance and it really does not matter whether it is nandrolone or some other substance,'' he added.
