LAHORE: Fast bowler Muhamamd Asif and his family were injured  as their car rammed into a footpath due to overspeeding, Geo TV reported. 

The fast bowler, his wife and two daughters sustained minor injuries. 

The family was immediately shifted to a nearby hospital for CT scans. Asif, while speaking to Geo News, said that his vehicle hit a footpath during a bid to avoid a speeding car.

Asif, along with Salman Butt and Mohammad Amir, was banned for five years by the ICC after he was caught bowling a pre-planned no-ball during a sting operation conducted by a UK media house.

Off the three, only Amir has been able to make a comeback to international cricket after serving his ban.

The fast bowler represents WAPDA in first-class cricket and was not picked by any franchise in all previous and coming seasons of the Pakistan Super League.
