Karachi: England will not have to face their 2012 tormentor Saeed Ajmal in next month's three-Test series against Pakistan, after the off-spinner was left out of the 15-man squad announced yesterday.
Ajmal, who turns 38 next month, has faced a tough time since returning to cricket from a five-month suspension after his bowling action was found to be illegal by the ICC last year.
Since making his comeback with a remodelled action against Bangladesh in April, he has shown little of the form that brought him 24 wickets during Pakistan's 3-0 whitewash over England in the UAE three years ago.
