Karachi - Star Pakistani off-spinner Saeed Ajmal has been given clearance by the Pakistan Cricket Board to play a shortened stint with Worcestershire in the English season.
The 36-year-old's departure was held up after PCB discussed the matter following confirmation of Pakistan's tour to Sri Lanka in July-August.
"We have given NOC (no-objection certificate) to Ajmal but want him to return in mid-July so that he can be part of team's tour to Sri Lanka," PCB Chief Operating Officer Subhan Ahmed said.
