Frustrated Saeed Ajmal Brands Harbhajan Singh And Ravichandran Ashwin As Chuckers


Banned Pakistani spinner Saeed Ajmal said in an interview that India’s veteran spinner Harbhajan Singh and Ravichandran Ashwin are both ‘chuckers’. Saeed Ajmal was banned in September 2015, due to a suspected action.

In an interview to Pakistan’s sports journalist Zainab Abbas for Duniya News, Ajmal said that both Harbhajan and Ashwin are chuckers and he was banned only because of politics and lack of support from his board. This was revealed by in a series of tweets by Zainab Abbas, a sports anchor-analyst for a local Pakistani TV channel Duniya News:

Zainab Abbas mentioned in her tweets that Saeed Ajmal was very ‘frustrated’. The only reason behind Saeed Ajmal’s frustration can be his inability to bowl with a legal action. He hasn’t been all that effective with his new action and the instant success of Pakistan’s leg-spinner Yasir Shah has taken all the limelight away from his ban.

Former Pakistan skipper Mohammad Yusuf told Times Now in a telephonic interview that Ajmal should focus only on his bowling. Yusuf also said that detecting illegal actions is ICC’s job and no other cricketer has a right to comment on this.
