The curse of the Doosra

Posted on September 9, 2014 by Selby There have been 0 comments

Amazed to hear that Pakistan’s number 1 bowler, offspinner Saeed Ajmal has been banned from bowling by the ICC due to a potentially suspect action( the Doosra), Ajmal, who has been Pakistan's lead spinner in Tests and ODI over the past few years, was formally reported at the 1st Test against Sri Lanka in August this must be a huge blow to Pakistani cricket.

Cricket Collectables have always been keen on Pakistani Cricket Memorabilia and have signed cricket bats, balls and tour material all autographed by the player. It is one of our most popular sellers

"An independent analysis was carried out by a team of experts at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane, however the ban can be suspended at any time should Saeed decide to modify his action to within the 15 degree tolerance permitted

Ajmal was previously reported for a suspect action in spring 2009 he was bowling the infamous Doosra, the well named Doosra is unique to off spin bowlers, the ball spins in the opposite direct direction to an orthodox off break and has proven to be very effective in recent one day internationals

Cricket collectables are delighted by the way Ireland are playing at present beating Scotland at Malahide yesterday by 7 wickets, well done to Craig Young accounting for 5 of them on his International debut
