Pakistan international Saeed Ajmal will be asking the ECB to act against England’s T-20 captain Stuart Broad after the later had hinted at the illegality of his bowling action on Twitter. Broad had replied to a tweet posted by former England captain Michael Vaughan after Ajmal, while playing for Worcestershire, scalped 13 Essex wickets.
Spurred by the performance, former England captain Michael Vaughan posted a photo of an Ajmal delivery during the match on his account on Twitter with the Tweet

Broad tweeted a reply “”This has to be a fake photo?!” before adding another: “Bowlers can bowl very differently in a lab while being tested compared to needing wickets in the middle.” The series of tweets led Ajmal, who has been cleared of a wrongful action before, to believe that his action while testing and in a match situation are different and further suggest his action may not fully conform to the laws.
Broad, as a player under the central contract of the english board, has a limited mandate on the topics he can broach about fellow players and Ajmal has asked his agent to follow up with the ECB and PCB to ask what exactly is going on. Broad can be punished if his comments impinge upon a fellow player.
