Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal calls it quits from all forms of cricket

Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal calls it quits from all forms of cricket

Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal on Monday said that he will be hanging his boots after the last match of the on-going domestic tournament, the National T20 Cup.

Ajmal enjoyed a successful start to his career and went on to play 35 Tests taking 178 wickets at an average of 28.10, one of his most memorable performances came against the Proteas at Newlands where his 10/147 very almost inspired what would have been a famous victory for Pakistan.

He famously captured 24 wickets in three Tests against England in 2012. The last time Ajmal wore the greens for Pakistan was back in 2015 during the post World Cup tour to Bangladesh before Yasir Shah took over the spin department.

"This national event is my last tournament and I don't want to be a burden on any team", said Ajmal, quoted Wisden India. Ajmal, who remodelled his action two years ago after being termed illegal, failed to make his place in the team. It was first reported during an ODI series against Australia in the UAE in 2009. I am highly satisfied with my career although the last two years were frustrating. His last global was a Twenty20 game in Dhaka where he finished with 0-25.

"I have forgiven everyone, from Michael Vaughan and Stuart Broad because they were the ones who hurt me with their comments in 2014", said Ajmal.

Ajmal, who made a late entry into worldwide cricket at the age of 29, quickly became one of the finest cricketers for Pakistan as also among the most potent spinners in the early 2010s.

Ajmal took a swipe at the process of calling bowlers out for illegal action.

Ajmal said he will concentrate on coaching in the future.
