Ajmal to begin work with biomechanist Hurrion.

KARACHI -- Pakistana[euro](tm)s banned offspinner Saeed Ajmal will be working with biomechanist Dr Paul Hurrion, along with former Test player Saqlain Mushtaq, to further modify his bowling action.

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) had earlier announced that Ajmala[euro](tm)s stay in Leicester had been extended for another week as the spinnera[euro](tm)s unofficial tests conducted at the Loughborough University suggested that though he has improved his bowling action dramatically, there was still work to be done to bring his deliveries to within the allowed limit of 15 degrees.

However, Hurrion, an English and Wales Cricket Board LevelIV qualified coach and current director at the Quintic Consultancy Limited, will guide Ajmal to further fine tune his action.

Saqlain has worked with Ajmal back here in Pakistan so the purpose of extending his stay in Leicester is to enable him to work with Hurrion,a[euro] said a senior PCB official.

Obviously Saqlain will continue his work with the bowler as well but Hurrion, a top biomechanist who understands how the human body functions, can provide some important tips.a[euro]

It has also been learnt that Ajmala[euro](tm)s flex has minimised substantially to 2225 degrees as compared to the findings of the official test, which revealed it to be 40.

The 37yearold has claimed 178 wickets in 35 Tests and 183 in 111 ODIs, while he has also taken 85 wickets from 63 outings in T20Is.
