At start of T20 World Cup 2014, Saeed Ajmal action in doubt?

Saeed Ajmal 'Dosra' in doubt in T20 World CupMIRPUR – Saeed Ajmal, Pakistan’s world class spinner, is known for his ‘Dosra’ style of bowling.

But just at the start of the world cup T20, his action has been put in doubt again.

English off spinner, James Tradwell has raised some questions on the Dosra bowl.

“Dosra is not possible without jerk of elbow,” he said.

“I have tried ‘Dosra’ several times, but each time it effected my wrist.”

On the other hand, West Indian spinner Narayan said that ‘Dosra’ is just a mental game.

“Bowlers need some tactics to bring batsmen into pressure.”

Narayan, who has got flashback on Wednesday by taking four wickets of Sri Lankan batsmen in a warm up match, just considered Dosra type balls a ‘Mind Game.’

Ajmal, who has not only invented Dosra but also Teesra too, himself has not spoken on the issue.

Some critics say that such statements could also be a tactic to bring the spinner, who has been consistently taking wickets and has been on top of bowlers ranking, under pressure.

This is specially true in a time, when Pakistan is all set to face arch rival India in its first T20 match of the mega event. The result of the match could pave the way of victories to the Green Shirts.
