“ICC banned me because of being Pakistani”, Saeed Ajmal:
It all started back in 2004 when Pakistani bowlers engaged with a deadly road accident. Saeed Ajmal was badly injured in that car accident and got 48 stitches on his body.
In the year 2014, Saeed Ajmal again became the victim and peoples started raising questions on his bowling style. At that time he again showed his medical reports but this time ICC officials banned him from playing International cricket and in 2017 he retired from international cricket.
In 2020, Saeed Ajmal recalled incidents:
Saeed is not happy with the decision of ICC officials. According to Ajmal, His reports were the same in 2009 and in 2014. But ICC allowed him to play in 2009 but banned in 2014. Ajmal believed, he was banned from international cricket because he was a Pakistani.
Srilankan cricketer Murli Dharan also became the victim of many controversies in his career. “After Murli Dharan left, They decided to ban me by thinking, Pakistan Cricket board can’t do anything”, Ajmal.
After the accident, there remained a little gap between his bones. So, to throw the ball with force, he has to bend the elbows and according to officials that were against the laws.
