Pakistan Will Miss Saeed Ajmal during Australia Series, Says Shahid Afridi
Pakistan's Twenty20 captain Shahid Afridi admitted his team will miss suspended ace spinner Saeed Ajmal when they meet Australia in Dubai on Sunday.
The 36-year-old off-spinner is serving suspension on illegal bowling action and will not be available to play internationally until he is cleared after remedial work and reassessment.
Ajmal has been an integral part for Pakistan in all three formats of the game, having missed only three Twenty20 matches since his debut, also against Australia at the same venue in 2009.
He is the leading wicket-taker in all Twenty20 cricket with 85 in 63 matches, a record which Afridi admitted made him an important bowler.
