Pakistan’s suspended off-spinner Saeed Ajmal bowled with his revamped action for the first time under the watchful eyes of his coach Saqlain Mushtaq.

Ajmal bowled more than 15 overs to all-rounder, Muhammad Hafeez in the nets. Hafeez has also resumed batting in the nets after returning home from the UAE because of a hand injury during practice that kept him out f the ODI series against Australia.

Ajmal is expected to go for an informal biomechanic test of his new and remodeled bowling action in the next few days to an ICC accredited centre.

Under the ICC rules once his new bowling action is cleared in the informal tests than the Pakistan cricket Board has to send a request to the ICC to have Ajmal’s bowling action tested officially in a formal test which will take place at Brisbane.

Mushtaq also said the PCB that Ajmal’s bowling action is improved and his arm is now straightening less than 15 degrees, as said by the ICC. He has also suggested sending Ajmal for the informal test and suggested the PCB to allow him to play a first class match.

According to Saaqlain, “The idea is that Ajmal can also be directly scrutinized by the umpires and match referee in the match so that a clear picture emerges about his bowling action.”

Ajmal has voiced his confidence over playing in the World Cup. He said “I am confident of getting cleared before the World Cup and my ambition is to make the World Cup squad,” Ajmal, who bowled with high speed cameras filming his deliveries, said. Ajmal was banned by the ICC for illegal bowling action in August this year.
