Ajmal dropped from squad as Pakistan meets Sri Lanka in first test tomorrow
COLOMBO (92 News) – Pakistan dropped off-spinner Saeed Ajmal from their squad for the three-test series against Sri Lanka this month, recalling the opening batsmen Ahmed Shehzad and Shan Masood.
As per reports, the 37-year-old Ajmal, once Pakistan’s most potent wicket-taker, has struggled since returning to international cricket from a ban for an illegal bowling action. He was not at the peak of his game in the limited-overs series against Bangladesh before he was left out of the team for the subsequent two-test series.
