The PCB wants their England counterparts to take disciplinary action Stuart Broad after the T20 captain’s remarks about the bowling action of Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal.
“We have sent a letter to the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) and we have enquired from them what action are they planning against Broad since he is a centrally contracted player,” Subhan Ahmad said on Sunday. Saeed Ajmal’s bowling action, which has been reported in the past, but was cleared by the ICC, has come under scrutiny while playing for Worcestershire in English county cricket where he has taken a bagful of wickets.
“Bowlers can bowl very differently in a lab while being tested compared to needing wickets in the middle.” Broad posted on his Twitter profile. The message was in reply to a Tweet from ex- English skipper Michael Vaughan, who had posted a picture of Saeed Ajmal bowling with a bent arm in a county match.
Saeed Ajmal, 36, is Pakistan`s leading spinner with 169 test wickets and another 182 in ODIs.
