Pakistan offspinner Saeed Ajmal received
a huge boost as his action was cleared by
International Cricket Council (ICC), giving
him the go-ahead to bowl in international
cricket. ICC also cleared the action of
Bangladesh's Sohag Gazi. The
development could see the top-ranked
bowler in the world play at the ICC Cricket
World Cup 2015.

ICC confirmed that all the deliveries that
were bowled by the duo during the official
test at the Sri Ramachandra University in
Chennai on 24 January were within the
permitted 15-degree level of elbow
extension. Video footage and images of
the pair's remodelled actions have been
sent across to umpires all over the world.
ICC described their reworked actions as
"significantly remodelled legal bowling
actions".

"Following remedial work and retests, the
bowling actions of Pakistan's Saeed Ajmal
and Sohag Gazi of Bangladesh had been
found to be legal, and the players could
now resume bowling in international
cricket," ICC said through a media release.

In September last year, ICC had confirmed
that an independent analysis had found
the bowling action of Saeed Ajmal to be
illegal, and placed him under suspension
from bowling in international cricket with
immediate effect. The apex body had also
added that the independent analysis found
that all his (Ajmal) deliveries exceeded
the 15-degree limit of tolerance permitted
under the regulations.

In December, the 37-year-old withdrew
himself from the World Cup after failing to
rectify his action in time to be eligible for
selection.

Now, however, Ajmal has found himself
with a chance at the last moment to make
his appearance at the World Cup in
Australia in New Zealand. With the final
squads having already been submitted,
Pakistan, or Bangladesh, would not be
permitted to draft in any new player
unless someone from the squad has to be
removed due to injury or personal
reasons.
