Islamabad:

Pakistan cricket coach Dav Whatmore expects offspinner Saeed Ajmal to be their "trump card" during their short tour of India this month.

The 35-year-old Ajmal is ranked No. 1 in one-day internationals and Twenty20s, with 109 wickets in 71 ODIs and 69 wickets in 48 T20s.

Whatmore says Ajmal "will always remain a trump card" for Pakistan and "will always remain a threat."

He says former captain Inzamam-ul-Haq will join their training camp in Lahore to pass on batting advice before the team leaves for India on Dec. 22.

The series, the first between the neighbours in five years, features two T20s and three ODIs beginning at Bangalore on Dec. 25.
