Islamabad: The Pakistan Cricket Board has retracted its decision to file an appeal for Saeed Ajmal, who believes he can overturn his suspension for an illegal bowling action on medical grounds.

Ajmal was suspended by the International Cricket Council on Tuesday, and soon after, 80-year-old PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan said in Lahore they will file an appeal. But within hours again, Khan backed down on the appeal.

Instead, he issued a statement that the issue will now be referred to its own illegal bowling review committee. (Full ICC Statement on the suspension)
