International Cricket Council has given clean chit to Saeed Ajmal’s action just ahead of 2015 ICC world cup. This is going to be biggest news for Pakistan as he is now available to play international cricket from now and it is expected that he’ll return to the side and will represent Pakistan in cricket world cup.
Saeed Ajmal’s test was done in Chennai on Friday and he clearly passed the test. Today ICC governing council has also given clean chit to him and allow him to play international games. Coaches at the Chennai center said, “following the test, the bowler’s action show marked changes and his landing of his left foot on the ground and almost fully side on action predict that he has every chance of getting cleared by the ICC experts.”
Ajmal bowled all his varieties of bowling like Doosra, quicker and carrom ball to pass the bowling test. Coaches said, “All these deliveries, according to the video clips, are well below or within the permissible limits.”
After getting clean chit spinner Ajmal said, “earlier I used to bring my bowling arm from behind my body. Now it is more of side on. Likewise, my front foot used to be on the air but now I keep my delivery strike on the ground.”
He credited former Pak spinner Saqlain Mushtaq for his efforts to make his action as per ICC rules and legalities. Saeed Ajmal said, “Saqlain had motivated me highly and inspired me to bring in the changes in my action by going to the nets on daily basis to work for over three hours. He had said that with his new bowling action, he had bowled over 12,000 deliveries at the nets and played a couple of domestic matches.”
Do you think Ajmal will play world cup ??
