The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Wednesday took a u-turn on its stance of appealing against Saeed Ajmal‘s suspension.
Soon after International Cricket Council (ICC) banned the top ranked ODI bowler with immediate effect, as his action was found illegitimate, PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan stated that they would file an appeal. But now, according to media reports, PCB won’t appeal to ICC against the ban imposed on their prime bowler.
In fact, Khan has issued a statement, according to which the matter will now be referred to their own illegal bowling review committee. It means, now PCB will act according to recommendations they receive from the committee.
However, banned off-spinner Ajmal was looking confident to overturn his suspension on medical grounds.
Earlier, in their statement on Tuesday, ICC stated: “The International Cricket Council today confirmed that an independent analysis has found the bowling action of Pakistan’s off-spinner Saeed Ajmal to be illegal and, as such, the player has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect,” the ICC said in a statement.
