Saeed Ajmal makes you laugh so much it’s unbelievable – Shoaib Malik
When asked about the infamous catch he missed during the ODI against the West Indies at the Dubai International Stadium, Malik said he and Saeed Ajmal were in a state of confusion.
“It’s one of those things that no matter how many times you say it, it still makes you laugh. I enter that phase. He was sitting there with his hands representing a flower. When he tried to make the catch, the ball was completely out of his hands. My mistake was that I should have said yes to that catch, but when I saw him fold his hands like a flower, I felt it was too easy. It was a doll and Saeed would catch it.” Malik said.
“So when that catch was released, I asked him, ‘Why didn’t you take that catch?’ He said: ‘I folded my hands like this because I was preparing to catch it in case you dropped it.’ I was like ‘Boss, I already let it go’. Saeed, everyone knows, he’s a wonderful guy. He makes you laugh so hard, it’s unbelievable.” Malik added.
