Saeed Ajmal is a Pakistani right-arm off-spin bowler who bats right handed. He is one of the late bloomers who has developed into one of the most pivotal spin bowlers for Pakistan during the last couple of years. Ajmal announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on 13-November-2017, two years after losing his wicket-taking bite with a remodelled bowling action that was twice deemed illegal.
During a successful but controversial career, Ajmal was once celebrated as the world's number one bowler in one-day internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20 cricket.
He famously captured 24 wickets in three Tests against England in 2012.
