Discarded Saeed Ajmal accuses Harbhajan Singh of chucking

New Delhi: In a shocking development, discarced Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal has accused veteran Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh of chucking.

In a series of tweets, Zainab Abbas, a sports anchor/analyst for dunya news, revealed that Ajmal claimed Bhajji to be a chucker in an interview.

 

 

Earlier, reports said that Ajmal became an active member of a leading Sunni Muslim religious movement after his international career was derailed this year due to a change in his bowling action, according to sources.

Videos of Ajmal wearing a green turban and giving short sermons on religion have been making the rounds on a social messaging service soon after he returned from Saudi Arabia after performing Haj.

Ajmal, who turns 38 on Wednesday, remained Pakistan's leading wicket taker in all three formats of the game with 178 Test, 184 ODI and 85 T20 International wickets before his bowling action was declared illegal in September last year.

Since then, he has struggled to make a comeback to international cricket with his modified bowling action and appeared in a few T20 and ODI games on the tour to Bangladesh in April before being sidelined by the selectors.
