The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has asked the ICC for a date for the official testing of Saeed Ajmal’s remodeled bowling action. Ajmal underwent his third unofficial test at Loughborough University, England on December 1. After reviewing the results of the unofficial test, PCB applied for a reassessment of his remodeled action in order to have him available for the World Cup.

The results of the unofficial tests revealed that his offspinner and faster balls were found legal, but his doosra was still over the 15-degree limit.

It is understood that Ajmal looked confident and ready for the official test after the rehabilitation phases and wanted to be tested officially with the ICC’s independent biomechanics expert. He was supposed to play domestic cricket in Pakistan but preferred to go through the test to get his name cleared before retrning .

Pakistan had already given their preliminary squad of 30 players, including Ajmal, to the ICC for the 2015 World Cup. The final 15-man squad is expected to be named in the second week of January and PCB wants to push for Ajmal’s inclusion by getting his name cleared by the ICC.

Ajmal was suspended from bowling in September after his after his action was found illegal. During the tests he underwent then, his elbow was found exceeding 42 degrees on average. He has been undergoing extensive remedial work on his action for the last two months with former spinner Saqlain Mushtaq.
