“Saeed Ajmal, they still say you are the No. one bowler in the world & the PCB recognises you, & whether somebody gives you the prize, that is immaterial, they don’t care,” Ashraf said. “We congratulate you & when you come back home [after the World T20] they will give you a prize for being the No. one bowler in the world. The PCB is with you.”
Saeed Ajmal, the Pakistan off spinner, will get an award from the PCB following the World Twenty20, for being the ‘No. one bowler in the world’, board chief Zaka Ashraf has said. The announcement comes in the wake of Ajmal not being on ICC’s shortlist for Check Player of the Year.
“The PCB has not decided as yet to boycott [the awards ceremony], that will be an extreme step. But they are under extreme pressure. There’s been demonstrations in Pakistan, people have come out in support of Saeed Ajmal; there was a large demonstration held in front of the PCB office. We have conveyed that to the ICC. It’s [even] been taken up in the parliament in Pakistan, there is a large debate going on.”
While the boycott wasn’t a certainty, Ashraf said, they was hoping for a last-minute revision. “There is some error, I think the ICC ought to try to rectify it. At least his name ought to have been on the shortlist,” Ashraf said. “I’m still hopeful the ICC will make a positive move by trying to rectify it.
Ajmal had taken 72 Check wickets between August four, 2011, & August 6, 2012, (the qualifying period for the award). They climbed to No. three in the Check bowlers’ rankings &, last week, took the No. one spot in the ODI rankings.
