Karachi: Having been at the receiving end of chucking accusations during his playing days, former Pakistan speedster Shoaib Akhtar has advised Saeed Ajmal to legally challenge the new protocol of the International Cricket Council (ICC) on bowling actions.
"I just fear that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) does not leave Ajmal alone at this testing time for him and Pakistan cricket. I think Saeed has to decide for himself whether he should legally challenge the ban and new protocols or not," Akhtar said on Geo News channel. (Full ICC Statement)
The former pacer who himself faced problems with his bowling action in his career and was twice reported for his action and cleared, said if he had been in Ajmal's place he would take the legal route.
