Saqlain was an expert spin bowler and he was the inventor of the dusra (the second one), a delivery which spun like a leg spinning delivery rather than an off spinning one. Ironically, it was the dusra which led to Saqlain's downfall. He had started over using it.
So how is all this related to Saeed Ajmal? Well, other than the physical similarity in their actions, Ajmal is also over using his Dusra these days. Rameez Raja almost started crying when Ajmal used the Dusra for the umpteenth time in the test against Zimbabwe. Saeed should take it easy and use the dusra for the purpose for what it was invented - the surprise ball.
