Islamabad, Feb 15 (ANI): Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajimal's move back to English county Worcestershire this season could reportedly be in doubt because of Pakistan's proposed tour of Sri Lanka.
Ajmal had signed to play in the Flt20, which begins in June, but the Daily Times reports that he now may be unavailable because of international commitments.
Ajmal played a major role in a short stint for Worcestershire in the latter half of last season. He took 6 for 124 against Sussex at Horsham to bowl Worcestershire to a victory that went a long way in securing their survival in Division One of the County Championship.
He demolished England in the recent Test series by taking 24 wickets, helping Pakistan to a 3-0 whitewash, and Worcestershire were keen to bring him back to New Road in 2012.
"We were aware when we signed Saeed that there was the possibility of Pakistan touring Sri Lanka," Worcestershire Chief Executive David Leatherdale said.
"There has been no definitive answer. We don't know if they will be touring or not. Saeed has signed for us and he is desperate to come. He is a class act and if he can't come back it will be a blow. If he is available then fantastic, if not then it will be a real shame but we will look at some other plans," he added. (ANI)
