The International Cricket Council (ICC) announced today, Tuesday September 9th 2014, that an independent analysis confirms that Saeed Ajmal’s bowling action is illegal. The ace Pakistani off-spinner has been suspended from bowling in international cricket with immediate effect.
Ajmal was reported after the Pakistan Sri Lanka Test Match Series played in Galle, last month. He can apply against the ban once he modified his bowling action according to ICC requirements.
