Saeed Ajmal had talked about his bowling action to Usman Khawaja back in 2021 with him talking about science in the viral video
As the Dean Elgar controversy snowballed into a gargantuan controversy on day 3 of the 3rd South Africa vs India test match, Saeed Ajmal decided he wanted to rake up the incident to open old wounds.
While the Indian team was right to fly into a rage and fume after Elgar was allowed to continue out in the middle with DRS showing the ball going over the wickets to see Marais Erasmus overturn his decision, the side’s anger was misdirected. The team for some perplexing reason decided to lash out at SuperSport, the broadcaster of the series despite it having no hand to play in the way the technology was used.
Old Viral Video Of Saeed Ajmal Talking About Science Resurfaces After His Comments On DRS
As the global cricketing fraternity deliberated over the decision, Ajmal brought up what had happened during the India vs Pakistan clash in the 2011 ICC World Cup, with him bringing up an incident involving Sachin Tendulkar. The Indian batsman’s LBW was overturned in that affair with Ajmal saying India shouldn’t be doubting the DRS now after throwing its weight behind the technology during the world cup.
“I have seen Dean Elgar’s review many times. Seeing him, no one can say that the ball is going over the stump. It is clear that the ball is hitting his knees and he is out. But why is Team India raising questions?
“In the 2011 World Cup, when Sachin Tendulkar’s decision on my ball was reversed, then India had said that DRS is a reliable and accurate technique. Then why are they now saying that DRS technology is not reliable and correct. Simply because the verdict went against you,” said Ajmal.

As he made the claims, an old video of Ajmal talking about science with Usman Khwaja resurfaced on the internet. He was seen talking about how he can teach people to ball the doosra without violating the 15 degree rule set by the ICC with him in angst at the governing council’s guidelines.
“I can bowl, I ready the guys like within a month any youngster can bowl doosra within 15 degrees but ICC ban straight away said nobody can bowl, science said, why science f**king man, what da science, science is the man”, Ajmal said during the interview which aired on Usman Khawaja’s YouTube channel in 2021.
