LAHORE - Pakistan paceman Mohammad Asif broke down in tears during a television interview and apologised to the nation for his repeated discipline violation this year. He also promised to turn a new leaf in future. "I apologise to the nation for my behaviour. I need to be more responsible and careful and you will see a new Asif in future," said Asif during an interview with a private television channel, before crying profusely. "I have disregarded the green Pakistan blazer but I promise that if I get the next chance I will be a totally changed player." The 25-year old is getting frustrated with every day as his dope hearing got delayed after terrorists' attacks on Mumbai and there are very few prospects of the Indian Premier League (IPL) tribunal meeting this year. Asif tested positive for nandrolone during the inaugural IPL season in April-May this year. His B sample also tested positive. The first hearing, conducted in October, failed to start after Asif's lawyer Shahid Karim challenged the jurisdiction of the tribunal. The tribunal was due to meet on November 29 but two days before the hearing, attacks on Mumbai forced its postponement. Asif blamed the IPL for the delay. "They announced the report of the test after two and a half months and are now not conducting any hearing. Its piling frustration on me and I anxiously wait to get cleared so that I can resume my cricket." Meanwhile, Asif is all set to press the Indian Premier League (IPL) to conduct the hearing into his dope failure at a neutral venue after the Mumbai attacks made his travel to India unlikely. A cricket website quoting sources close to the paceman said that paceman's lawyer Shahid Karim is due to write to the IPL to conduct the hearing either in London or in Dubai so that the case is settled sooner than later.Asif, who tested positive during the inaugural season of the IPL, was due to appear before the three-member tribunal on November 29 but two days before the hearing attacks on Mumbai led to its postponement.Sources said that IPL's new lawyer, who hails from London, will also have security concerns over travelling to India and would also press for a neutral venue hearing. Asif's lawyer successfully challenged the appointment of Charles Russells for the hearing, as Russell had also advised Asif on various issues of the case before joining the IPL.
