Worcestershire are confident that Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal will be available for Friday's FL t20 game against Warwickshire.

The 33-year-old was due to arrive at New Road on 5 June after Pakistan's tour of the West Indies, but has been delayed by visa problems.

"The visa is sorted," said chief executive David Leatherdale.

"We are hoping that Saeed will be with us for Friday's game and we are excited about what he can do for us."

Ajmal, who has taken 50 wickets in 11 Tests for Pakistan, will stay with Worcestershire until at least the end of August.
