KARACHI: Suspended spinner Saeed Ajmal is confident that he would be able to clear his reassessment on January 24 in Chennai but believes that he would not be able to appear in the World Cup.

Ajmal feels that he needs some more time to get full command over his new action and will not be ready to play international cricket even if he clears the test.

“I feel I need some mileage before gaining perfection over my new action and it will be really difficult for me to appear in World Cup,” Ajmal said in a televised interview.

“But I will give my availability to PCB once I feel I have got command over my new action. Whenever I will feel that my action coming out properly and I can bowl with same effectiveness as previously then only I would play for Pakistan.”

The bowler further hoped that he would re-emerge as a stronger bowler with his new action and varieties while thanked Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), his family and friends for standing with him during this troubled period.

Bowling correctly is always harder than chucking..... you see the ball doesnt turn that much without a bent arm. What about teams and batsmen who lost matches on account of the "magical" spin this "legendary" bowler derived.
