The news of Ajmal’s imminent retirement from all formats of the game came as expected. The bad thing happened to his career when he was reported for illegal action in 2014 and couldn’t recover from the trail of suspicion. PCB looked never in control to handle his case with authority. Soon a saddening end of his future began.
The enigma of bowling action struck him at the very peak of his career. The possibility of conspiracy cannot be ruled out in his case as some people think.

Now appears a vast vacuum for a real talent to come up and fill his place and carry the legacy of doosra for years come.
