Peshawar: Pakistan Cricket Board is contemplating its future course of action, weighing all options, after off-spinner Saeed Ajmal was suspended following an independent analysis of his action at the National Cricket Centre, Brisbane found it to be illegal, leading to his suspension by the ICC from bowling in international cricket.

“It is indeed disappointing in the context of Pakistan cricket and its immediate prospects. The PCB has referred the matter to its recently-formed Illegal Bowling Action Committee, which will consider the matter and revert with their views and/or recommendations and the Board shall thereafter decide what action to take”, said the PCB Chairman, Shaharyar M. Khan.

The ICC rules allow PCB 14-day period to go into appeal.

The PCB’s five-member Illegal Bowling Review Committee consists of: Mohammad Akram, Mushtaq Ahmed, Ali Zia, Aleem Dar (in case he is on the ICC duty, Ahsan Raza) and Dr. Sohail Saleem.
