Saeed Ajmal’s test will be conducted by the accredited and lead team of Human Movement Specialists. This process will be managed by the ICC personnel and use Cricket Australia facilities. The testing date and location were agreed in consultation with the Pakistan Cricket Board, with Brisbane being one of a number of world class facilities that can now be used by ICC accredited Human Movement Specialists for testing bowlers with suspect actions”, he said.

ICC spokesman said, in its efforts to make testing more accessible across cricketing countries the ICC is presently in the process of accrediting Human Movement Specialists at these services so they’re able to test bowlers using the ICC testing protocol.

Until such time the ICC will not make any opinion on this issue, he said.
