Chanced across this news on the MusicPakistan website, posted on September 20. I have no idea if it is true or not, but don't say you weren't warned. If Mohammad Asif flunks his return match today, we will all know what happened...
Here is the item, reproduced warts and all:
Veena follow Asif to
Lollywood actress Veena Malik has obtained South African visa and will leave for
from Johannesburg to meet pace maker Muhammad Asif, reliable sources reported on Friday in Islamabad . The sources revealed that Veena was going to Lahore South Afriato meet Asif as the bowler was already there for the Champions' Trophy.
Love affair between Veena and Asif was started in December 2008. Veena rejected the claim that she ever tied the knot with Asif, when her ex-boyfriend Babarak Shah pursued them. The scandal was revealed in the country's newspapers.
The sources said Veena would set for
on Sunday night. She would celebrate Muhammad Asif's return to the national team there. South Africa
When Veena contacted, she told that it's her right to go wherever she wanted and that it's her personal life and nobody had right to interfere in it. "
is a beautiful country and she often visits the country", she added. South Africa
On the other hand, if Asif shines, perhaps that pro-sex dossier by the Indian coach / physio makes sense after all!
On a completely different note, here's my take on the whole thing, for what it's worth... Losing today's match to Australia may not be such a bad thing in my book, because it would put us in second position in our group. Which in turn means we would be playing New Zealand (who are on top in the other group) in the semis. Now, regardless of the injury problems facing the Kiwis, if you recall, both times that we have won the World Cup (1992, T20 in 2009) we have faced New Zealand in the semis.
I just think it would be a good sign.
