Saeed Ajmal equals record with Shane Warne against South Africa

Saeed-Ajmal makes another recordCENTURION: Claiming two wickets in the last match of the series, the Dosra specialist bowler, Saeed Ajmal, has squalled record of Shane Warne of highest wickets taking against a single opponent in a year.

With his two wickets of Proteas in the third one day at Centurial, spinner has claimed as many as 24 wickets against South Africa during 2013.

Ajmal made this achievement by penetrating McLaren’s defence with the doosra as McLaren, looking to cover the line for the ball turning away, is instead greeted with one that hits the handle of the bat, and inside-edges onto the stumps

Earlier Shane Warne got the same number of wickets during 1994. Ryan McLaren who broke the record of Australian legend this morning, has made the record wicket-taking against a single opponent in the ground.

Obviously the opponent was the Green Shirts, who have won the series of one days played at South African grounds.
