Pakistan’s cricketer Saeed Ajmal announced his retirement from all forms of cricket yesterday.
All through a victorious but contentious career, Saeed Ajmal was once commemorated as the world’s number one bowler in ODIs, T20 and test matches. In year 2012, he took 24 wickets in three Test matches against England. Following impermanent ban, he came back to the game in year 2015 but not in good form.
During two ODIs and a Twenty20 in Bangladesh, he clinched only one wicket. Later, he was never chosen for the national team.
“I am resigning from all forms of cricket after the current National Twenty20 tournament,” Ajmal stated.
“It was a highly fulfilling career in which I secured whatever goal I set for myself and assisted the team triumph games.”
Ajmal clinched 178 wickets in 35 Tests including match in Sri Lanka in year 2014. He completed with 184 wickets in 113 ODIs, 85 in 64 T20 internationals.
The player won’t be seen playing in the forthcoming season of the Pakistan Super League either as he has been selected as the bowling coach of Islamabad United.
His best innings were during match in 2012 when he clinched 24 wickets in three Tests and helped Pakistan triumph the series 3-0.
