Graham Gooch believes that England should not fear Pakistan bowler Saeed Ajmal's new secret delivery ahead of the Test series between the two nations.

England batting coach Graham Gooch has claimed that the top order do not fear Saeed Ajmal ahead of the Test series with Pakistan.

Ajmal has boasted that his secret new delivery, called the 'teesra', will cause Andrew Strauss's team plenty of problems throughout the series held in the United Arab Emirates.

However, Gooch believes that England's batsmen should not fear Ajmal's new weapon.

The former captain said: "We'll wait and see [about the teesra]. Saying one thing and doing it are two different things in my book.

"Just remember, you don't play the bowler and what he says, you play the ball that comes out of his hand."

England are preparing for the series with a warm-up match against a Pakistan Cricket Board XI.
