    The samples were then sent to the International Olympic Committee (IOC) accredited laboratory in Malaysia.
     
    Shoaib and Asif both tested positive for the banned steroid nandrolone last year when the PCB held tests before the ICC Champions Trophy in India.
     
    They were initially banned in November but an appeal had their charges and suspensions dropped.
