Pakistan cricket team’s most prized asset, spin bowler Saeed Ajmal has fired back at an Indian ad that poked fun at Pakistan’s world cup losses to India.
In the ad aired by Star Sports, an enthusiastic Pakistani cricket supporter always prepares to celebrate a Pakistan victory over India in a world cup, with a box of firecrackers. Yet, each in each world cup encounter between the two Asian cricket powerhouses, India ends up winning and he has to postpone his celebrations till the next time.
The commercial apparently did not sit well with Ajmal, who retorted that his team would celebrate this time with firecrackers.
Saeed Ajmal has been ruled out of the world cup as his bowling action had been questioned at the time the 15-man Pakistan squad had been named.
Arch rivals India and Pakistan clash on 15th February 2015 at Adelaide. India has always beaten Pakistan in a world cup encounter and this time as well, the odds favor the Indian side. The injury-plagued Pakistani cricket team is yet to show off an impressive performance both with the bat and the ball.
Ajmal, who was the trump card as far as the Pakistani bowling line-up is concerned, will have to sit out the mega event. Even though the ace spinner couldn’t make it to Australia/New Zealand for the world cup, it seems he still doesn’t shy away from taking on the opposition!
