Saeed Ajmal targets big-hitting Gayle
Pakistan is currently featuring in a tune-up camp in Abbottabad, where US forces killed Osama bin Laden two years ago, a hilly town hoping to match conditions in England where the eight-nation Trophy will be played from June 6-23.
“We are practising and the way Gayle has been playing it is amazing,” Ajmal said. “We are looking at the videos of his batting because we have a match against them and hopefully we will have no problems.”
Pakistan will also face South Africa on June 10 and arch-rivals India on June 15 — both at Birmingham. Holders Australia, England, Sri Lanka and New Zealand feature in group A. Top two teams from each group will qualify for the semis.
