I've also said this before that Ajmal needs some time away from the game.
Who is that Zaidi from Sussex?
Yasir Arafat 10(6) and 1/17 in a match winning effort vs Middlesex
Next match is Lanchasire vs Worchestire: Junaid Khan vs Ajmal !
Ajmal 1/30 (4)
Junaid 0/37 (4)
Ajmal: 1/30 in 4 overs
Junaid: 0/37 in 4 overs
Most of the bowlers got thrashed
Lancashire won the game.
Are the matches being telecast upon Sky Sports?
^ Some of them are.
Saw this on PP:
Junaid Khan had 2 catches dropped & finishes on 4-37-0. Good effort from him considering he only landed in the UK late last night #Cricket
Ajmal: 6/75 and 7/19 against Essex. Crazy stuff.
Worcs won the match.
Those are new best figures for Ajmal in an innings! Ajmal also gets 500 FC wickets in this feat.
But.... but I thought he was past it
9 an over is not a good effort, even if he landed an hour before the game
Ajmal can have a county career for a long time even after he retires for Pakistan. A 40 year old Ajmal would still be better than most English country spinners.
Ajmal: 2/21 (4) Worcs won the match.
Junaid: 0/35 (4) Lancs won the match.
Arafat: 2/27 (4) & 4*(5) Sussex lost the match.
I agree! And look at the quality of batsman who hit him;all journeyman players except Colin Munro!
^ He had 2 dropped catches that day. But Junaid's performance today was nothing special either. Needs to get his act right quickly. Hopefully Waqar can sort him out.
Shown Malik is also in England, playing for Birmingham Bears.
Malik will make his debut next Friday - Lancashire v Birmingham T20 game in Manchester.
Ajmal took 2/80 in his last FC. Due to rain the match was drawn.
How's Junaid doing?
Nothing special. Played 2 T20 games. Wicketless in both and ER of around 9 in both games.
Although he had two dropped catches in the first game.
He will play his third game today, hopefully he'll do better this time.
Is he not playing 50 overs?
No, only T20s.
Much better from Junaid today:
Lancs won by 1 run.
Junaid's performances should be taken with a pinch of salt as it's only domestic T20 which he did well in last stint but hes rather poor in international version of T20! A rather overhyped bowler who is really mediocre...
Much better than Wahab.
At least he has a performance of substance in an ICC tournament...
Yes that is something Juni needs to work on without a doubt...
Junaid Khan took 4-12 today against Warwickshire and won Lancashire the game!
Good last 2 games for Junaid 7 wickets for just 33 runs!
Saeed Ajmal 1-14 off his 4 overs today for Worcestershire against Northants with Worcs winning!
Well done by Junaid. Good to see after poor performance in Asia Cup and the first two matches with Lancs.
Yasir Arafat 0 & 0/23 in his 4 overs as he narrowly failed to defend 5 runs in the last over vs Glamorgan.
Not happening in 2015 as the pitches dont suit his style off bowling!
Ajmal: 1/39 & 0/80 in his last FC game vs Surrey which was drawn.
Junaid is in action against Yorkshire in a T20 game today. The match is being broadcasted on Sky Sports in England and Star Sports in Pakistan.
Junaid was brilliant today. 4-0-25-1
Impressive death bowling. Bowled some fantastic yorkers.
Unfortunately Yorkshire won the match though due to some great batting by Aaron Finch & most importantly 6 penalty runs awarded to them due to Lancs. poor over-rate.
Worcester won their game vs Leics today.
Malik: 3-0-18-0 & 28(22)
Warks won their game against Durham
