Ajmal, the famous offspinner, is back with a reworked action even as Bangladesh fancies its chances against a visiting side with fresh faces and depleted by injuries.
Pakistan’s mystery spinner Saeed Ajmal returns back to action from today in the first ODI match against Bangladesh. He was found guilty of having an illegal bowling action by International Cricket Council (ICC) during Pakistan’s tour of Sri Lanka in September 2014 and was also not picked for the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 for the same reason.
Pakistan’s head coach Waqar Younis believes that Ajmal will make a solid comeback with this Bangladesh tour. According to local media reports, while talking to media during the training session, Waqar Younis said, “This would be his first chance with the new bowling action and it would be a chance for us as well to test his effectiveness. As far as I believe his experience will come in handy and he will be successful”.
