Ajmal joins squad after testing
Ajmal underwent testing of his action after being reported for a suspect action during the first Test against Sri Lanka in Galle.
This was the second instance that Ajmal has been reported as earlier in April 2009, he was reported for bowling the doosra, and was cleared the following month.
The final and decisive ODI of 3-match series leveled by 1-1 will be played on August 30 (Saturday) at Rangiri Dambulla International Stadium.
In order to rectify the issue of suspected bowling actions right from the domestic level, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has formed a five-man committee to analyze the actions identified.
According to PCB spokesman, they have a list of bowlers having suspected actions and also encouraged the umpires and match referees to keep a close eye on bowlers.
“If the bowlers are reported, they will go through a procedure at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), which the five-man committee will oversee before clearing them”, he added.
The panel of the committee formed includes the ICC elite panel umpire Aleem Dar, former chief selector Iqbal Qasim, NCA head coach Mohammad Akram, national spin-bowling coach Mushtaq Ahmed and GM sports medicine Dr Sohail Saleem.
