Take a rest from cricket: Saqlain’s advice to Saeed Ajmal

Ex- Pakistan Test spinner Saqlain Mushtaq has suggested Saeed Ajmal to take a rest from the sport in order to extend his career. Saqlain Mushtaq said it was a big failure that Saeed Ajmal couldn’t take a single wicket in the 2nd innings of the Abu Dhabi Test against Sri Lanka since he was a top class spinner.

“He is a quality spinner and has proven himself in every format but he looked tired against Sri Lanka and perhaps he needs to be given a break from the sport so that he can refresh himself and come back fresh. He can still play for some more years and is our match winner,” Saqlain Mushtaq, who took 208 Test and 288 ODI wickets in an illustrious career, said.

Saqlain Mushtaq said that top spinners were always needed to perform even on slow wickets, mainly in the 2nd innings of a Test match. Saqlain Mushtaq said he was pleased with the wealth of spin talent available in the cricket world and also with a few fresh faces coming.
