Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja recently PCB Ray has been announced as the new president. Former bowler Shoaib Akhtar has given his reaction for the first time. Will tell about anything he has asked for the president. But, before that, let us tell you that the 1992 World Cup winner with the Green Army nominated by Prime Minister Imran Khan, Rameez Raja, has been unanimously entrusted with the responsibility of the Pakistan Cricket Board before the ICC T20 World Cup 2021. He has signed a three-year deal for this. Ehsan Mani had resigned from this post in August itself.
Former cricketer made a mistake in the speech of the new PCB chairman
Former Pakistan fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has often been one of the critics of the PCB and its members. He has shared his reaction on Rameez Raja’s recent speech at the Pakistan Cricket Board headquarters. He felt that even his speeches, given on the first day as the chairman elected to the PCB office, sounded ‘a bit confusing’. He spoke about this in the cricket show ‘Game On Hai’.
Former Pakistani fast bowler even requested Rameez Raja not to sack Babar Azam from the captaincy. Along with this he said that,
“I felt that he seemed a little confused while giving his speech and talking about certain subjects. He wants Babar to emulate Imran Khan and then he also wants him to keep an eye on the captain. He wants to investigate them, which will not allow Babar to become a fearless captain.”
Requested not to remove Babar Azam from captaincy
Talking about Rameez Raja, before that from 2003 to 2004, he had worked as the Chief Executive Officer of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Although Shoaib Akhtar has also said during the conversation that,
“From what I have seen, Rameez Bhai will be tough on Babar Azam and will try to toughen him up. But, my humble request is that please do not remove him from the captaincy.”
Actually T20 World Cup is near. This World Cup will be played by the Pakistan team under the leadership of Babar Azam.
However, this is not the first time that Shoaib Akhtar has made such a statement. Even before this, when the team for the T20 World Cup was announced. Even at that time, he had told the PCB fiercely. He also said in his statement that,
“Rameez bhai means good for Pakistan cricket. But they need to remain calm. It’s really not a good idea to give the media ‘tit as’ for criticizing his role.”
