The International Cricket Council (ICC) banned the 36-year-old earlier on Tuesday after biomechanic tests revealed all his deliveries breached the permissible limit for straightening of the elbow joint.
               
"The ban is not a problem for me right now. The ICC has stopped me from bowling because my elbow is bending beyond the 15 degrees allowed by the ICC and I know I can correct that," Ajmal told Reuters.
               
"It is very disappointing to know the results of the tests but I am a fighter and I know what I have to do to get back into international cricket before the World Cup," he said.
               
Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) said they were considering their next move hours after chairman Shaharyar Khan had said they would appeal against the decision.
               
"The PCB is contemplating its future course of action, weighing all options," the PCB said in a statement, adding that the board had 14 days to appeal.
               
Khan said he felt someone like former pace bowler Waqar Younis, who is the head coach of the team, can help Ajmal emerge from the episode.
               
Ajmal, who turns 37 next month, said he was also open to approaching former players to help him correct his action which was first reported in 2009.
               
"Playing in the World Cup and doing well for Pakistan is a dream for me and I am not going to give up on that," said Ajmal, who has been Pakistan's top spinner in all formats.
               
Ajmal has about five months to correct his action and appeal for a reassessment in order to play in the World Cup.
