Pakistan’s banned off-spinner Saeed Ajmal bowled with his brand new revamped action for the first time last week under his coach Saqlain Mushtaq at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore.. Ajmal delivered quite a few number of overs to Muhammad Hafeez who has also resumed his training in nets after having to return home from UAE because of a hand injury during practice which kept him out of the ODI’s and T20 against Australia.

The off- spinner is expected to go for an informal bio-mechanic test of his remodelled bowling action in the next few days to an ICC accredited centre, however the centre has not been decided yet.As per the ICC rules once this remodelled 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.

Saqlain Mushtaq meanwhile has informed PCB about the improvement in Ajmal’s bowling action and he was now straightening his arm under the 15 degree angle allowed by the ICC. He also suggested that before sending Ajmal for an informal test,he should play one domestic first class match with his corrected action.

Meanwhile, Ajmal who bowled with high speed cameras filming his deliveries was quoted saying,”I am confident of getting cleared before the World Cup and my ambition is to make the World Cup squad”

Here’s how all of this happened:

11th august: Saeed Ajmal is reported for a suspected illegal bowling action and was orderd to undergo testing within 21 days.

25th August: Ajmal begins official testing at Cricket Australia’s National Cricket Centre in Brisbane,Queensland.

9th September: Ajmal banned with immediate effect by ICC. Pakistan Cricket Board say they will weigh up their options, while Ajmal was reported saying that medical condition is to blame and he remains confident of playing in the 2015 ICC Cricket World Cup.

13th September: PCb release details of ICC report that showed that Ajmal was found to be straightening his arm nearly three times the legal limit.
