Fans hold Ramiz responsible for Misbah, Waqar exit


KARACHI: Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis gave sudden resignation just weeks before T20 World Cup and it turned all the criticism towards the upcoming Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s chairman, Ramiz Raja. 

Pakistani cricket fans think that Ramiz’s influence, before even taking charge as PCB chairman, was the reason behind the sudden resignation of two key posts in team management.

Ramiz was judged critically on social media after Misbah and Waqar left the coaching roles before the all-important T20 World Cup.

It must be noted here that Ramiz will be elected as PCB chairman in the BoG meeting on September 13. Reportedly, he had started meetings with officials and players in the chairman’s capacity.

PCB’s Patron-in-Chief, Prime Minister Imran Khan had nominated Ramiz and Asad Ali Khan for the next chairmanship of cricket in the country.
