Karachi : Former Australian cricketer Dean Jones, who is currently mentoring Islamabad United in the Pakistan Super League, has showered praise on Saeed Ajmal and described the out-of favour off-spinner as a `big plus` for the Pakistan cricket, following his impressive bowling display in the lucrative T20 tournament.
Despite losing the match against a star-studded Peshawar Zalmi by 24 runs, Islamabad’s spinner Ajmal, who returned from his five-month ban for chucking last year, was at his absolute best.
Reflecting on Ajmal’s performance, Jones said that the 28-year-old displayed a class bowling performance, insisting that the bowler was well aware of the pace and the variety of deliveries to bowl, the Dawn reported.
Jones further said that Ajmal performed terrifically and that it was his experience that had helped him to make a brilliant comeback.
Ajmal was ranked as the number one bowler in ODIs and was also as impressive in Test format before being suspended for exceeding the 15-degree elbow flex limit set by the International Cricket Council .(ANI)
