Pakistan’s Ajmal could be sanctioned after rant


Saeed Ajmal could be sanctioned by the ICC and the Pakistan Cricket Board after he launched an attack on the governing body's process to rule out illegal  bowling actions.

Ajmal, who was reported last year for an llegal action, has not had the same impact since he had to remodeled his action and is struggling to make the Pakistan team again.

The 38 year-old feels the ICC are just targeting offspinners and only players from certain countries get looked at, even suggesting that India spinner Harbhajan Singh bowls with an illegal action.

Ajmal said: "Why just target the off-spinners? Why not the left-arm spinners, legspinners or fast bowlers?

"I can tell you that I have been through this bowling assessment process so many times and have watched and studied this issue so closely that I can vouch that if tests were carried out, there would be many other bowlers whose bowling actions would exceed the 15 degrees extension limit.

"I don't want to take names but there are still bowlers, including fast bowlers, who are violating the new rules but no one is looking at them.

"If they put Harbhajan Singh through a proper bowling assessment test now, I can safely tell you he will exceed the 15 degrees limit."
