Saeed Ajmal inches up to number 1 position in ICC rankings

After making it to the # 1 spot in the International Cricket Council’s rankings for ODI bowler, Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal has become the number 1 bowler in Twenty20, as per the same rankings.

The off-spinner, whose career’s best ratings came against Australia in the T20 international at Dubai Stadium, scored 782 points in the ICC rankings.

While he was included in the ICC Test Team of the Year, his name was a notable omission from the ICC Cricketer of the Year, ICC Test Cricketer of the Year and ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year, despite a remarkable performance during the 12-month qualifying phase.

The off-spinner has 120 international wickets to his name between the phase August 4, 2011 and August 6, 2012, which is the most by any bowler. Saeed Ajmal also has 72 Test wickets, once again the most by any bowler.
