Karachi: Pakistan's leading spinner Saeed Ajmal has brushed aside concerns over his bowling form before the series in Sri Lanka, saying he can still outfox batsmen with his "doosra" delivery.
"It gives me great joy to get any batsmen out who can read my 'doosra' because it just gives me confidence that I have become a complete off-spin bowler," Ajmal told reporters on Friday.
The 36-year-old promised to play an impact role in the series which starts on August 3 and includes two Tests and three One-day Internationals.
Pakistan follow Sri Lanka with Test series against Australia and New Zealand in the UAE.
Ajmal said the series against Sri Lanka would be a tough challenge because of their batting strength. "They have two of the world's best batters in Sangakarra and Jayawardene and it is always a challenge bowling to them.
"It is also Jayawardene's farewell Test series so it is going to be interesting doing battle with them."
