Saeed Ajaml, Pakistani off-spinner is willing to play cricket up to World Cup 2015,the top-ranked spinner in the ICC rankings in both Tests and ODIs, also said that “I hope by the time I am ready to walk out, another Ajmal would be ready to take my place,” he was interviewed by espncricinfo “I will ensure this and it’s my responsibility to do so”.
He said that he did not worry about having lost so much time before he got the chance to play international cricket.
“Age definitely plays a key role but I have no regret for being late into international cricket,” Ajmal said. “Who knows if I had played earlier I might not have been the same Ajmal. What I am today is more important for me.
“I am currently 34 and I know my age won’t let me play perhaps more than three years. But it’s also a matter of fitness that can actually extend a player’s life. I am optimistic that I can play at least till the 2015 World Cup before calling my time from the game.”
Ajmal hoped that he had inspired enough young players to take up spin bowling. He is also planning to launch a cricket academy next year in his city Faisalabad. Ajmal recently wrecked England with his doosras and off-breaks and finished with 24 wickets in the three-Test series in the UAE.
“A lot of bowlers around the world are so much keen about the doosra and I love to help. Being a quality spin bowler is tough and it takes time to obtain results. You need to be very patient.
As a spinner Bowler he lifts many of his talent towards the young guys of Pakistan cricket, After saqlain Pakistan got a variety off-spinner in shape of Saeed Ajaml but it was very much late as he made debut in 30s.
But in shorter career he made his mark with sound quality of spin Bowling.
We wish him best of luck for the rest of his career.
