Sachin Tendulkar in the 11th over of the match was given out by the on-field umpire after Saeed Ajmal appealed for LBW but the decision was overturned by the third umpire after Sachin Tendulkar took the DRS but according to Saeed Ajmal the DRS decision was manipulated to advantage Sachin as they cut last two frames to made it look like missing leg stump. On the podcast show he said.
“I played in the 2011 world cup in India if you could remember the controversial call of Sachin Tendulkar’s wicket. They cut last two frames to make the ball miss the stumps otherwise Sachin was clearly out”Saeed Ajmal on Nadir Ali podcast
The podcast was not about hate as the bowler also praised Sachin Tendulkar for being such a great player and said.
Sachin is a legend he scored more than 20,000 runs and it is a big thing to take his wicket. When I played with him, I realised what it meant to play against Sachin, he was my team’s captain.Saeed Ajmal added
