Pakistan Cricket has been under a lot of turmoil in recent times. After the team’s disappointing whitewash defeat to England in the three-match Test Series at home, there was a lot of change in personnel. The biggest change came in the highest rank of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), as Ramiz Raja was sacked to make way for former PCB chief Najam Sethi to take over the cricketing body. In fact, the whole core committee of the PCB was sacked making way for 14 new members including Sethi.
After his ouster as the PCB chief, Ramiz Raja returned to his YouTube channel and talked about many things related to Najam Sethi and Pakistan Cricket Board. He also added that he would not be allowed to commentate in the international matches.
He is a free man and if he is selected for commentary…: Najam Sethi
Sethi, the new PCB chairman held a press conference on the 1st day of Pakistan’s Test vs New Zealand and said that his regime will never stop Raja from doing commentary for Pakistan cricket.
“Will not stop Ramiz Raja in any way. I have great respect for him. I understand the kind of pressure he must have been in about me from up. Ramiz is a free man and if he is selected for commentary we will not oppose it, in any circumstances we won’t,” Sethi was quoted as saying.
Raja also opened up on his sudden exit from the cricket board saying he has been ill-treated by the management. He said that they bumped into him like there is a raid going on by Federal Investigation Agency.
“Aisa inhone hamla kiya cricket board mein aake. Mera saman bhi nahi lene diya inlogo ne. Subah yeh 9 baje, 17 bande dhandate fir rahe they cricket board mein. Jaise ki koi FIA ka chapa par gaya. (They attacked the cricket board (office) and did not even let me collect my belongings. Early morning at 9 around 17 guys stormed into the office, which felt as if the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) of Pakistan has raided the office),” said Raja in his Youtube channel video on Monday.
