Ajmal dropped for Lanka Test series

Published on June 05, 2015 with No Comments

Pakistan have dropped off-spinner Saeed Ajmal from their squad for the three-Test series against Sri Lanka this month and have recalled opening batsmen Ahmed Shehzad and Shan Masood.

The 37-year-old Ajmal, once Pakistan’s most potent wicket-taker, has struggled since returning to international cricket from a ban for an illegal bowling action.

He was ineffective in the limited-overs series against Bangladesh before he was left out of the team for the subsequent two-Test series.

“Rahat Ali, Sohail Khan and Sohaib Maqsood are still on the rehab after sustaining injuries and it is hoped that they would be available for selection in the near future,” chief selector Haroon Rashid said.

Shehzad and Masood were left out of the Test series in Bangladesh, which Pakistan won 1-0.

Fast bowlers Rahat Ali and Sohail Khan and batsman Sohaib Maqsood are yet to recover from their injuries and missed out on selection, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said.
