Waqar counting on Ajmal for Sri Lanka series
Pakistan's national team head coach Waqar Younis is reportedly banking on ace off-spinner Saeed Ajmal to win the series against Sri Lanka.
Ajmal has just returned to Pakistan after a successful stint with England county team Worcestershire, where he claimed 63 wickets in just nine matches to help his team top the table with 182 points from 11 matches.
The training camp for the upcoming Sri Lanka series is currently under way in Lahore, where the players continue to train in two sessions, reports the Express Tribune.
Waqar admitted that although Pakistan's strength will be spin against the Islanders, the team will avoid relying too much on them.
The 42-year-old emphasised that fans and media should not forget that Pakistan have three important series going into the 2015 World Cup, which cannot be neglected at any cost.
The coach reiterated that Pakistan will strive to win both the Test and one-day series and the players will play positive cricket.
