Mirpur (Bangladesh), Mar 19 : The Indian cricket team management has reportedly approached the International Cricket Council (ICC) to express its doubts over Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal''s suspect bowling action.
The Indian team management approached ICC CEO Haroon Lorgat on the issue after its win against Pakistan in the Asia Cup on Sunday.
This is the second time in 2012 that Ajmal''s action has been questioned. Earlier this year, England had complained against Ajmal during their Test series loss to Pakistan.
The ICC says that it has cleared the bowler on a previous occasion.
ICC Chief Haroon Lorgat said that there is no problem with Ajmal''s bowling action.
Lorgat said that from a naked eye it looks different and technically it looks different. So, technically Ajmal''s action is within the 15 degree bent bowling arm limit.
Former Indian left-arm spinner Bishan Singh Bedi said that the ICC is officially endorsing chucking in cricket. He described Saeed Ajmal as an out and out chucker.
He said that the ICC needed to show more gumption in the dealing with the problem of chucking in international cricket.
Former Indian opening batsman Arun Lal said that onfield umpires these days would not call a bowler for chucking, in view of the action taken against previous umpires on the same issue. (ANI)
