Saqlain’s contract linked to evaluation of Ajmal’s action

LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board while making a U-turn regarding former off-spinner Saqlain Mushtaq’s contract has decided to take final decision in this regard after evaluation of Saeed Ajmal action in a bio-tech lab in the United Kingdom.

On Wednesday, the PCB Cricket Committee held a meeting in Lahore under the chairmanship of Shakeel Sheikh which was attended by Intikhab Alam, Iqbal Qasim and Haroon Rashid besides Zakir Khan.

After the meeting the PCB issued a press release stating: “The PCB has decided to extend Saeed Ajmal’s remedial work under Saqlain Mushtaq’s watch by another 15 days.”

However, on Thursday, another PCB press release stated: “The PCB Cricket Committee has decided that since Saqlain’s one-month contract is over, a review whether or not to extend his contract will take place following an evaluation of Saeed Ajmal’s action in a bio-tech lab in the UK by Nov 10, 2014.

“Following that evaluation, the Cricket Com­m­ittee will decide Saqlain’s future.”
