Former pakistan ace spinner Saeed was able to bag only two wickets in four matches in the recently concluded T 20 national tournament with his remodelled action leaking away 124 runs in the process.
The 37-year-old also opted out of the last match for his Faisalabad team due to his bad patch. The bowler is thinking of retirement from cricket. More ever his name as been dropped from the teams due to tour Zimbabwe and England
“Saeed is disappointed with his own form and his failure to come to grips with his modified bowling action. That is why he also skipped Faisalabad’s last match in the tournament in Rawalpindi,” one source was quoted by the Press Trust of India, adding that the off-break bowler is thinking big time about retirement.
Earlier, chief selector Haroon Rasheed said that Ajmal has a lot of opportunities to regain his confidence in this year’s domestic circuit.
“It is never easy to change your bowling action after you have bowled with it and enjoyed success for so many years. We feel for Ajmal and the problems he must be going through. But at least he is trying and like I have said the doors are still open for him if he can show us his new action has also become effective,” Rasheed said.
Historically, few bowlers are able to make a comeback once their actions are forcibly altered.
