images3Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal found failed in his biomechanics test in Brisbane because his elbow extension exceeds the 15 degrees allowed by the ICC. His elbow extension exceeded more than double the 15 degree. The source said that his extension was around 41 to 42 degrees which is also one of the records that ever recorded while testing any player for his bowling action in a biomechanics test.

Ajmal, who is now suspended from bowling in international cricket and also withdraw from the national T20 championship starting in Karachi from September 17, was also previously reported in 2009 but cleared on medical grounds.

The sources said that Ajmal had been asked to bowl eight overs during his biomechanical test and in his eight overs spell, he bowls from around as well over the wicket using doosra and quicker ones in his all spell. According to the sources, his elbow exceeded just because he had a road accident few years back which causes him a problem in his right wrist.

“The astonishing part is none of the deliveries bowled by Ajmal came close to meeting the 15 degrees elbow extension standard,” he quoted from the report now with the PCB.

“His action was monitored by 27 cameras including two high speed cinematic cameras and also supervised by the PCB medical officer Dr Sohail Saleem who accompanied him to Brisbane.”
