Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif tested positive for banned substances during this year's Twenty20 Indian Premier League (IPL), organisers said on Monday.

"The Indian Premier League compared the result from the WADA-approved laboratory in Switzerland with the data collected by IDTM, the Sweden-based independent agency which organised the anti-doping testing in accordance with World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) standards, to confirm the player in violation is Mr Mohammad Asif," the IPL said in a statement.

The lucrative league was organised in April-May.
