LAHORE

Pak­istan's No. 1 spin­ner Saeed Aj­mal has signed with the Ade­laide Strik­ers for the Twenty20 Big Bash League. He will be avail­able for the Strik­ers' first match, against the Perth Scorchers, and may then re­turn for the lat­ter stages of the tour­na­ment. Aj­mal's sig­na­ture rep­re­sents a sig­nif­i­cant ad­di­tion to the Strik­ers and the BBL, his spin­ning vari­a­tions hav­ing teased and con­fused bats­men the world over in re­cent times, not least those of Aus­tralia.

"I am re­ally ex­cited about play­ing for the Ade­laide Strik­ers and re­ally happy that I will get the chance to show my tal­ent in the BBL," Aj­mal said.

"I am very keen to meet up with the rest of the boys soon and play my best in the games that I am avail­able, with the hope that Ade­laide make the fi­nal stages and I can re­turn to help win the com­pe­ti­tion." The Strik­ers coach Dar­ren Berry said he was de­lighted to have signed Aj­mal, the lat­est ex­am­ple of his pol­icy of us­ing spin as an at­tack­ing weapon on dry sur­faces at Ade­laide Oval.
