On Wednesday Shaharyar Khan, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman told reporters present in Gaddafi Stadium in the eastern Pakistani city of Lahore that it was too late for Saeed Ajmal to clear an official reexamining his bowling action, the Express Tribune reported.
Saeed Ajmal is suspended for illegal bowling action since September last year and will travel to Chennai, India, for a reassessment test, on 24th January, 2015.
Saeed Ajmal’s bowling action is yet to be passed by the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The cricketer was disallowed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) from bowling in international cricket circuit after his action was found to be illegitimate during a match against New Zealand. Pakistani cricket officials trust the off-spinner needs time to adjust himself to bowl within the allowed elbow extension of 15 degrees.
The report added that, the International Cricket Council (ICC) allows the participating teams to replace players in their teams during the World Cup under exceptional situations, but it remains subject to approval from the technical board of cricket’s governing body.
The 37 years old, Saeed Ajmal, who had been selected in Pakistan’s preliminary team, will continue remedial work on his bowling action and play domestic cricket until he is pleased that he can take the International Cricket Council (ICC) bowling test. Moreover, there is very nominal time for Saeed Ajmal to get into Pakistan’s World Cup team.
The International Cricket Council World Cup is going to start in Australia and New Zealand on 14th February, 2015. The championship is one the biggest cricketing events across the world.
The Pakistan cricket team is now one of the most successful, skilful teams in modern cricket across the world. The team won the 1992 International Cricket Council Cricket World Cup by defeating England in the final, reached the semifinals of the 1979, 1983, and 1987 World Cups, as well as the finals in 1992 and 1999.
