Worcestershire have announced the return of Pakistan’s spinner Saeed Ajmal for the 2015 season. 

Ajmal, who was banned last year by the ICC due to suspect bowling action, worked hard to remodel his action and on February 7th this month, the governing body gave the green signal to his remodelled bowling action, paving the way for him to add to his domestic and international wicket tally. 

After getting across to this news, Ajmal expressed happiness and said: 

“I am proud to be part of Worcestershire County Cricket Club and delighted to be coming back for a third spell.

“I’ve had this difficult spell of my career with my action but I knew I would come through it and have had the support not only of Pakistan but also Worcestershire throughout. 

“Worcestershire have all the time stood by me and I can assure them I will repay the faith they have shown in me this season. I would love to be with Worcestershire as long as possible so I can help the club achieve their high goals and also help establish them in Division One.”

Worcestershire director of cricket Steve Rhodes also said that the team is delighted to have Ajmal back as he is a kind of a spinner who can change the course of the match quickly. 

He said: 

“We are obviously waiting to hear as to what is going to happen regarding the Bangladesh-Pakistan series – if it goes ahead or not.

“That will determine how much cricket we see from Saeed this year, but the good thing is we know for definite he will be available for the second half of the season. He has made a tremendous impact. He is a real quality performer as all our members and supporters know.”
