Karachi: Cleared to resume international cricket after his bowling action was found to be legal, star Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal on Saturday expressed contentment and said he intended to play for another 3-4 years.

“I am really happy today that finally my action is clear and all the hard work has paid dividends. I have no intention to retire and I want to play for three to four years more for Pakistan,” Ajmal told reporters in Lahore.

Ajmal, 37, said he had set himself a target of returning in April-May when the national team tours Bangladesh. “But if an emergency arises and I am required then I am ready to also go to the World Cup,” he said. Meanwhile, bowling action of Bangladesh’s Sohag Gazi has been deemed legal, the International Cricket Council said Saturday.
