Saaed Ajmal has been reported for throwing the ball to the International Cricket Council (ICC) following Pakistan’s defeat against Sri Lanka in Galle.

As per the laws of ICC, the magician Ajmal will have to undergo a test of his bowling action within 21 days, however, he will be allowed to bowl in the international till the results of the test are known.

The match officials have handed over a report to Moin Khan,the team manager that there were a number of deliveries that were bowled with a suspected action, so the bowler’s action needs to be scrutinized.

Saeed Ajmal has faced the same problem four years back in 2009, but, he got through from all the testing procedures.

Moin Khan has said that the allegation on Ajmal is quite surprising to him and the own management, but, they are not panicking at all and Ajmal is to feature in the second test as well.

Saeed Ajmal has been arguably the best spinner in the world for the last couple of years. However, there is some possibility that Ajmal can face some sort of restriction from ICC on bowling his mind boggling Doosra.
