London: Worcestershire have agreed a short-term contract with Pakistan spinner Saaed Ajmal for this year's Twenty20 season but are awaiting final confirmation of the deal, county officials said on Thursday.
Ajmal has been in superb form for Pakistan in the first Test against England in Dubai, capturing seven for 55 on Tuesday to leave Andrew Strauss's men struggling to save the Test.
Worcestershire chief David Leatherdale said today the county was confident of re-signing the talented spinner. "We have spoken to Saeed. We have put an offer on the table with him and his representative," he said.
