Ajmal is 'magician', says Rhodes

Worcestershire coach Steve Rhodes dubs Saeed Ajmal a 'magician' after the Pakistan spinner's 13-wicket haul in their 72-run Championship win over Essex.

Saeed Ajmal took 7-19 in Essex's second innings, for match figures of 13-94 - the best in the Championship this season - as Worcestershire returned to the top of Division Two.

"He doesn't necessarily want it turning square," Rhodes told BBC Hereford & Worcester. "He is just a real magician. He showed his international class in winning the game for us."
