PCB looking for reassessment of Ajmal’s bowling action

Pakistan cricket board said that they are seeking a reassessment of Saeed Ajmal's bowling action which was considered as illegal in September in a hurry to clear the suspension on this off-spinner as the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 was not far away. Ajmal was suspended from bowling at the international level because of suspect bowling action during the Galle Test against Sri Lanka. Ajmal was undergoing his practice to correct his action and the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said he was ready to have his action re-tested by the International Cricket Council. "We have sent an email to the ICC for Ajmal's official bowling reassessment and waiting for a date", said PCB Chief. According to the ICC rules bowlers are allowed to extend their elbow by 15 degrees and Ajmal's assessment in Australia showed his extension was nearly 43 degrees. Ajmal has undergone two unofficial tests at Loughborough University in England
