Saeed Ajmal eyeing ‘player of the tournament’ title at T20 WC

Islamabad: Pakistan off spinner Saeed Ajmal is unfazed by his snub from the International Cricket Council (ICC) awards despite performing brilliantly recently, and is already eyeing the player of the tournament award at the Twenty20 World Cup in Sri Lanka.

The 34-year-old has targeted the best player’s title at the World Twenty20 after attaining the top position in the Twenty20 and 50-over formats.

“I’m targeting the player-of-the-tournament title. I’m working very hard and I’m confident of giving a good show for my team in Sri Lanka conditions as well. All the opposing batsmen will be my target,” a daily quoted Ajmal, as saying.

“I will have to perform well against everyone to achieve my target in the tournament. I’m not going to come up with a new delivery. I’ll just look to effectively use the weapons I already have,” he added.
