Sad to hear of Ajmal's ban... I can possibly understand the doosra but offbreaks? I hope he can correct his actions in time for CWC'15— Dav Whatmore (@dfwhatmore) September 9, 2014
Wow - Ajmal banned! Never nice to see fellow professionals going through a tough time...hopefully he's back soon!— Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) September 9, 2014
Make no mistake that bowling a Doosra and reverse swing are brilliant skills.. Do we want the Doosra banned?— Dean Jones (@ProfDeano) September 9, 2014
Ajmal been banned for throwing? I dont get it...just let em play...all the best bowlers chuck anyway!!!— Adam Hollioake (@adamhollioake) September 9, 2014
Career ending for Ajmal, will never sort that action out. Can you imagine Murali changing action and being just as effective ?— Martin Bicknell (@bickers1969) September 9, 2014
2 UAE spinners had doosras ruled illegal & another is absent pending testing. They always felt they suffered as board isn't as strong as PCB— Paul Radley (@PaulRadley) September 9, 2014
