Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal will have his action officially retested on January 24 at the Sri Ramachandra University in Chennai.
If Ajmal passes the test, he will be allowed to bowl in international matches once again. However, if he fails, the International Cricket Council (ICC) will decide upon a certain period where he will not only be banned from bowling, but also unable to get his action retested.
“We feel he is ready for re-assessment,” Pakistan’s National Cricket Academy head coach Mohammad Akram said. “We took time and didn’t push hard for his return because the idea was to make sure that he is bowling within the limit. His career though doesn’t end with the World Cup, what important is that he continue to play cricket even after the World Cup as cricket is his bread and butter and he has serviced Pakistan in very difficult time.”
