Legendary Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal is backing left-arm seamer Rumman Raees to shine in this year’s Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Raees, who last played for Pakistan in January 2018, was picked by Islamabad United in the gold category of the PSL draft last month.
Raees represented Islamabad United in last year’s PSL, where he took eight wickets in eight matches at an average of 34.
With Raees having recovered from a serious knee injury and other fitness issues, Ajmal, who is Islamabad United’s bowling coach, is confident that he will excel during the PSL.
“Rumman Raees is completely fit and is ready to deliver great performances,” Ajmal was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
