Ace Ajmal on the rise

Worcestershire spinner Saeed Ajmal’s match-winning form has propelled him up to fifth in the overall FTI MVP rankings.

The Pakistan international took his LV= County Championship wicket-tally to 56 for the season, at an average of 15.91, with match figures of 12-140 in the crushing 249-run victory over Glamorgan that sent Worcestershire top of Division Two.

Ajmal, who has claimed six five-wicket hauls this term, is behind leader Tom Smith of Lancashire, Nottinghamshire’s Samit Patel, Kent’s Darren Stevens and Jim Allenby of Glamorgan in the overall standings.

The 36-year-old is also fourth in the LV=CC FTI MVP rankings.

Ajmal has also had an impact in lifting Worcestershire Rapids to the North Group summit in the NatWest T20 Blast, helping them secure six consecutive victories.

He has taken eight wickets in as many fixtures, conceding just six runs per over on average.

Another spinner in the top 10 is Warwickshire’s Jeetan Patel, who is one place below Ajmal in the overall rankings.

However, Patel sits a spot above Ajmal in the LV=CC FTI MVP standings courtesy of his 352 runs and 32 wickets.

Spinner Saeed Ajmal has been a revelation for Division Two leaders Worcestershire this term, taking 56 LV= County Championship wickets
