Ramiz Raja has been one of the famous Pakistan cricketers, who made name as opener in International cricket and then as commentator. He has been appointed as Pakistan Cricket Board Chairman and then he got removed unceremoniously for Najam Sethi. Ramiz Raja lashed out against Najam Sethi and stated that Government has changed constitution to fit in Najam Sethi.
Ramiz Raja lashing out in his video stated how he has been humiliated by Najam Sethi. He said, “This Najam Sethi is tweeting 2:15am at night that Ramiz Raja has been sacked, star congratulating me. I have played Test cricket, this is my field, and it hurts to see these people from outside cricket trying to act like a Messiah. They have not come from the development or advancement of cricket. They just want to boss around and enjoy being in the limelight. These people have nothing to do with cricket and have never even picked up a bat in their lives.”
Najam Sethi after taking over as PCB Chairman announced that Pakistan government will decide if Pak team will play in India or not. Ramiz Raja, on the other hand, stated that Pakistan won’t play in India, if India won’t play Asia Cup in their country. Jay Shah, Secretary of BCCI, earlier stated that India is considering if they will travel to Pakistan to play Asia Cup and will ask Asian Cricket Council (ACC) to move it to a new destination. Pakistan Prime Minister, Shehbaz Sherif did not like Ramiz Raja taking things into his control and when England clean sweeped against Pakistan, the government removed Ramiz Raja and appointed Najam Sethi.
PCB has announced that they have collected all Ramiz Raja belongings and had him pick them up. Najam Sethi on the other hand stated that they will be civil to Ramiz Raja and would be happy to hand over him commentating contracts in future, if he wishes to work with them. And he also has decided to change Pakistan team coach. Things seem to getting political and murky, when cricket has to make headlines!
