The PCB was earlier pondering to challenge the ICC ban on Ajmal, however the board withdrew its stance and now decided to seek expert’s help for correcting Ajmal’s action instead of indulging in a legal action.

Saqlain, the invetor of ‘Doosra’, is currently residing in London and the PCB might call him to Pakistan. Earlier the former spinner had also expressed willingness to work with Ajmal after the International Cricket Council (ICC) banned the 36-year-old earlier on Tuesday after biomechanic tests revealed all his deliveries breached the permissible limit for straightening of the elbow joint.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Shaharyar Khan conceded it was a big jolt coming less than six months before next year’s 50-over marquee event.
