PCB may drop Ajmal from Twenty20 World Cup squadMay 16th, 2009 - 4:24 pm ICT by ANI
Lahore, May 16 (ANI): The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is considering to drop off-spinner Saeed Ajmal from the Twenty20 World Cup squad as it is waiting for the results of the biometric test of the bowler which was done after he was reported of a suspect action.
“We are waiting to see what happens, and we are also pondering the possibility of pulling him out of the World Cup and including a reserve player,” a PCB spokesperson said.
The International Cricket Council had appointed biomechanist Bruce Elliott to conduct the test, and the report is awaited in two weeks time.
Ajmal was reported of a suspect action by the on-filed umpires Billy Bowden and Asad Rauf along with television umpire Zameer Haider after the second one-day international match against Australia in Dubai last month.
Ajmal had gone through rehabilitation in 2007 also, but that phase was kept under wraps. (ANI)
