Pakistan Off-Spinner Saeed Ajmal is all-set to miss the first match of the three match ODI series that kick starts tomorrow. Ajmal, who was reported for illegal bowling action during the first test against Sri Lanka earlier this month will now leave the Pakistani team in Colombo and will report to a ICC accredited testing facility in Brisbane. Ajmal will leave for Australia hours before the start of the first ODI.

There are chances that Ajmal might end up missing the second ODI as well. He is scheduled to undergo the tests on August 24. If the tests are completed in a day, he will immediately fly back to Sri Lanka and join the squad for the second ODI which takes place on August 27.

Saeed Ajmal was reported by the onfield umpires and the match referee of the first test match against Sri Lanka at Galle. As many as 30 deliveries are suspected by the ICC who stated that Ajmal is allowed to bowl until his test results are known.

This is the second time Ajmal has been accused of illegal bowling action. Five years back in 2009, Ajmal was reported for chucking while bowling doosras and was later cleared of the charges. But this time, his stock delivery i.e. the off spinner has been reported. Ajmal has now joined New Zealand’s Kane Williamson and Sri Lanka’s Sachitra Senanayake in the list of cricketers who were reported for illegal bowling action in the past two months.
