Akram slams Aussies for poor approach to Ajmal
Karachi: Australia won the first ODI in Sharjah, but was beaten in the second ODI at Abu Dhabi with heavy dew making life difficult for the bowlers on Friday night.
Wasim felt that the biggest advantage for Pakistan was that the Australians had no clue on how to play Ajmal.
"They can't pick his off-break from his doosra and that shows the quality of the bowler," the Daily Times quoted Wasim, as saying.
He said this was the reason Ajmal had already picked up seven wickets in just two matches without conceding too many runs.
Ajmal, who has been the top wicket-taker in Tests for the calendar period starting from July 2011 to August 2012 was included in the ICC's Test Team of the Year but was not nominated for any other category of the annual awards.
His omission came as a surprise to many as he also finished at number two in the list of leading wicket-takers in ODIs for the same period assessed by the ICC while picking their final nominations.
Sachin Tendulkar announced his retirement from international cricket after playing his 200th Test in the home series against the West Indies next month.
