Can join Pakistan team for World Cup if situation arises: Saeed Ajmal

Pakistan spin wizard Saeed Ajmal, who has been cleared for bowling, says he wish Pakistan cricket team for their World Cup campaign best of luck and if some remote circumstances arises that he is needed, he can join the team Down Under.

“I wish best of luck to the team and I pray the players perform well,” said Saeed Ajmal, who has been cleared of illegal bowling action.

“I don’t want any of the players to get unfit so that I could replace him. I want them all to play well. But if and only if some remote situation arises and I am needed, then I would be ready,” he added.

“My main target now is series against Bangladesh and I want to get completely in shape before that. There are three months left and therefore I believe I can be ready by then,” he said.

“Since I have started outdoor practice, I am feeling more comfortable and pace and variations are almost same as before,” Ajmal added.

Pakistan’s World Cup campaign endured a big blow when Ajmal, Pakistan’s top bowler, pulled out of the World Cup after facing suspension for illegal bowling action.

“I am very grateful to my family, friends and especially Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), who have supported me at every step,” he added.

According to reports, PCB has spent around three millions on Saeed Ajmal to have him cleared. Former Pakistan spin maestro Saqlain Mushtaq was hired to help Ajmal remodel his action effectively. Moreover, Ajmal was sent abroad first for unofficial and then official bio-mechanic test of his bowling action.
