Failing to impress national selectors after back-to-back shoddy performances in the domestic T20, veteran spinner Saeed Ajmal is planning to call time on his international career.
“Saeed is disappointed with his own form and his failure to come to grips with his modified bowling action. That is why he also skipped Faisalabad’s last match in the tournament in Rawalpindi,” one source told PTI informing that the off-break bowler is thinking big time about retirement.
Ajmal, 37, finished with two wickets at an average of 62 after conceding 124 runs in four matches and he has struggled to make an impact with his new action since early this year.
Chief selector Haroon Rasheed said there was a lot of domestic cricket to be played this season and Ajmal should keep on working on his bowling action and hope for the best.
“It is never easy to change your bowling action after you have bowled with it and enjoyed success for so many years. We feel for Ajmal and the problems he must be going through. But atleast he is trying and like I have said the doors are still open for him if he can show us his new action has also become effective,” Rasheed said.
