Saeed Ajmal is one of the most successful Pakistani cricketer in the past few years. Hence, International Cricket Counsil (ICC) imposing an ban on him will shock not just Pakistan but cricket fans across the World.
ICC found out that the bowling action of Saeed Ajmal is illegal as the deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance permitted under the rules. Soon, ICC suspended the bowler from continuing in International Cricket with immediate effect.
The decision to impose a ban came a fortnight after Saeed Ajmal was scrutinised by ICC Officials at Hi-Tech National Cricket Centre in Brisbane. Saeed Ajmal's bowling action came under scanner during the first Test match against Srilanka last month.
On the other hand, Saeed Ajmal is hopeful that he will be allowed to play ICC World Cup which is going to take place early next year.
