Veteran Pakistan off-spinner Saeed Ajmal has announced his retirement from all forms of cricket on Monday.

Meek Mill now sits in a jail cell after a judge sentenced him to 2-4 years in prison for a parole violation. The rapper's lawyer, Joe Tacopina, says he plans to file a motion to have Brinkley removed from the case.

Faisalabad-born off-spinner was once ranked world's number one bowler in ODIs and T20 worldwide cricket.

Having made his debut at 30, Ajmal's short but extremely successful career saw him reach the top of the ODI and T20 worldwide rankings while he was also an equally potent force in the Test format.

Duterte told a gathering a businessmen in December 2016 that as mayor of Davao he prowled the streets and killed people. The much-anticipated meeting between two of the world's most controversial leaders is set to take place on November 13.

"I am quitting all forms of cricket after the current National Twenty20 tournament", the spinner broke the retirement news over the phone. Ajmal, who remodelled his action two years ago after being termed illegal, failed to make his place in the team. It was first reported during an ODI series against Australia in the U.A.E.in 2009. He played just two ODIs against Bangladesh in April and a lone T20I in 2015 which proved to be his final appearance in global cricket for Pakistan. I am highly satisfied with my career although the last two years were frustrating.

Ajmal played his final ODI and T20I matches on the 2015 tour of Bangladesh ending with 184 wickets in fifty over internationals and 85 scalps in the shortest global format.

He also denied that such maligning practice was initiated by the BJP against its own leaders in the past. Hardik said that he is "amused" that the BJP is so "petrified" of his existence in the political sphere.

"More hurtful was that current player Stuart Broad questioned that and his comments hurt me no end. But I have forgiven everyone". "The process of dealing with bowlers of illegal action seemed to be only for me and (Mohammad) Hafeez because there are a number of bowlers who are still playing with faulty actions". Ajmal said he would concentrate on coaching in the future.
