Karachi, Sep 9: Banned Pakistan offspinner Saeed Ajmal is hopeful of his bowling action being cleared by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in the appeal and wants to be a part of ICC World Cup next year in Australia and New Zealand.

On Tuesday, Ajmal was suspended from bowling in international cricket after analysis found all his deliveries exceeding the tolerance level of 15 degrees. (ICC nets a 'big shark': Bedi)

Speaking for the first time after the suspension, Ajmal said his elbow was not usual and due to this he appears to have bent his arm more than 15 degrees.

"My elbow is not usual so that's why it seems that I bend it more than the normal 15 degrees allowed. We will go into appeal soon," Ajmal was quoted as saying on Cricket Australia's (CA) website today.

"I will be in action in the World Cup next year, that's my resolve," he added.

"They're (the ICC) yet to consider my medical reports. Once they do it I am sure there shouldn't be any problem.

"I'm 100% positive and looking forward for the best and by the grace of Allah I will be in the World Cup XI," he concluded.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has said they will appeal to ICC against Ajmal's suspension.
