Ajmal enjoyed a successful start to his career and went on to play 35 Tests taking 178 wickets at an average of 28.10, one of his most memorable performances came against the Proteas at Newlands where his 10/147 very almost inspired what would have been a famous victory for Pakistan.

Saeed Ajmal, the off-spinner from Pakistan, announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Monday post the domestic T20 cup.

Faisalabad-born off-spinner was once ranked world's number one bowler in ODIs and T20 global cricket.

Ajmal, who turned 40 last month, lost his flair after his action was deemed illegal by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2014. It was first reported during an ODI series against Australia in the 2009. He played just two ODIs against Bangladesh in April and a lone T20I in 2015 which proved to be his final appearance in global cricket for Pakistan. I am highly satisfied with my career although the last two years were frustrating. Pakistan have also found an able alternative in leg-spinner Yasir Shah now, but Ajmal will always be remembered as one of the greatest spinners the country has ever produced. "But I have forgiven everyone".

Referring to fellow spinner Mohammad Hafeez, Ajmal criticised the process of evicting bowlers for illegal action. He was reported for an illegal action twice in his global career and it clouded somewhat the sheer potency of his doosra, a delivery he used to devastating effect.
