Saeed Ajmal: Pakistan off-spinner says he has relearned everything

New Delhi: Discarded Pakistan pacer Saeed Ajmal has stated that he has relearned everything with his aspects in bowling.

The Pakistani cricketer was suspended by the ICC in 2015 for five months for an illegal bowling action. Since his suspension was lifted, Saeed wasn't favoured by the Pakistan selectors.

The 38-year-old is currently playing in the Twenty20 domestic Pakistan Super League.

According to an exclusive interview to Cricinfo, Saeed Ajmal stated that he has relearned everything and has followed it up with a heavy ball.

“I have relearned everything. Even with my body, I have had to start new exercises. Then I followed that up by bowling with a heavy ball. Everyone knows my right wrist is broken [in a bus accident]. The wrist bone protrudes out and my whole arm flexes. To get this under control, because it is already ten degrees, I have learnt to bowl with a heavy ball,”said Ajmal.

The former World No. 1 bowler also added that he has bowled 12,000 deliveries during his rehab and is developing the muscles.

“I bowled 12,000 deliveries during the rehab before coming back. I am developing those muscles. Initially I didn't have the pace, but thankfully my pace is up to 90kph.”

Ajmal who has comeback with a newer action said that he has learned some variations.

“Even with the round-arm action I have learned some variations. In the round arm if I do this to my finger, it goes out that way [drifts out], if I do it this way, inside, it goes like this and spins in.”
