Saaed Ajmal & Sohag Gazi bowling actions cleared by ICC
Pakistan spinner Saeed Ajmal has been cleared to resume his international career after his bowling action was deemed to be legal.
The 37-year-old, who has taken 178 Test and 183 one-day international wickets, was suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) last September.
In December he ruled himself out of the World Cup but has now undergone remedial work and passed ICC retests.
Bangladesh spinner Sohag Gazi has also been cleared to play again.
|Saeed Ajmal's success for county and country|
|Ajmal played in nine of Worcestershire's 16 Championship games in 2014, but did enough to bowl them to promotion, taking 63 wickets at 16.48.|
|He has taken 178 wickets in 35 Tests at 28.10 in only five-and-a-half years since making his debut for Pakistan at the age of 31 in July 2009.|
He has since worked with ex-Pakistan Test player Saqlain Mushtaq, undergoing tests at Loughborough and Edgbaston prior to Christmas.
Worcestershire have also been monitoring the situation, as they are keen to sign him for a third time next summer, following the part he played at New Road in bowling them to promotion in 2014.
