Pakistan Cricket Board Not to Appeal Saeed Ajmal Suspension
The Pakistan Cricket Board has retracted its decision to file an appeal for Saeed Ajmal, who believes he can overturn his suspension for an illegal bowling action on medical grounds.
Ajmal was suspended by the International Cricket Council yesterday, and soon after, 80-year-old PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan said in Lahore they will file an appeal.
But within hours again, Khan backed down on the appeal.
The ICC said analysis of Ajmal's action in the first test loss to Sri Lanka in Galle revealed "all his deliveries exceeded the 15 degrees level of tolerance.
