Ramiz Raja becomes the new PCB chairman
It was already in the news that Ramiz Raja was on the way to become the PCB chairman and it is finally confirmed now.
An active member of the 1992 Pakistan World cup winning team. Ramiz took the catch for the final wicket as Pakistan beat England in the big final at MCG under Imran Khan’s captaincy.
A fine batsman for Pakistan during the mid-1980s to 1990s period. Ramiz was a fluent stroke player and sublime to watch. He was a decent player of fast bowling and could have had a better overall international record, having scored 2833 runs at 31 average in 57 tests with 2 hundreds and 5841 runs at the same average in 198 ODIs with 9 hundreds.
Ramiz turned into a very popular commentator after his cricket career, with crisp and to the point analysis. He has always been very clear and concise in his views, coming from a family of high intellect with his brother the late Wasim Raja also having played with distinction for Pakistan. Ramiz may well be the right person to lead Pakistan cricket when the country is trying to once again raise the levels of their game.
Having good relations with Sourav Ganguly since their playing days. Both India and Pakistan can look forward to good cricketing relations at the administrative levels with both Ramiz and Sourav leading their respective cricket boards at the same time.
