"I have been examined by doctors and they feel I could require a surgery for a suspected hernia," he told Reuters on Thursday.

Ajmal, 35, said he could have the operation before Pakistan's one-day series against Scotland and Ireland in late May.

He said he would need a two-week break from cricket but intended to take part in the Champions Trophy in England in June.
