ISLAMABAD: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Sunday said Pakistan ace off-spinner Saeed Ajmal's test will be conducted using the same testing protocol that were earlier followed for the testing of Sri Lanka's Sachithra Senanayake and New Zealand's Kane Williamson.
In a press release issued here, an ICC spokesman said Ajmal will be tested on Monday at the Cricket Australia National Cricket Centre in Brisbane.
He said Ajmal's test will be conducted by their accredited and lead team of Human Movement Specialists.
“This process will be managed by the ICC personnel and use Cricket Australia facilities. The testing date and location were agreed in consultation with the Pakistan Cricket Board, with Brisbane being one of a number of world-class facilities that can now be used by ICC accredited Human Movement Specialists for testing bowlers with suspect actions,” he said.
The ICC spokesperson said in its efforts to make testing more accessible across cricketing countries, the ICC is currently in the process of accrediting Human Movement Specialists at these facilities so they are able to test bowlers using the ICC testing protocol.
“The results of the tests on Saeed Ajmal's action will be known in about two weeks following which the ICC will announce the findings via a media release. Until such time, the ICC will not make any comment on this matter,” he said.
