PCB New Chairman: Ramiz Raja Likely to be the Next PCB Chairman
According to various Pakistani media outlets, Ramiz Raja may be appointed as the PCB chairman as he is well known internationally and has contacts. They said Pakistan’s Prime Minister Imran Khan also wanted Ramiz Raja as PCB’s New Chairman.
Ehsan Mani, the current president of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), is due to end his term this August. He could be replaced by the famous commentator Ramiz Raja. There is a heated discussion going on in the Pakistani media.
The term of the current PCB president Ehsan Mani will end this month. Ehsan Mani does not want to be the president himself as he is older. That is why the governing body of the PCB is working to find a new president.
Ramiz Raja was an important member of the Pakistan team that won the World Cup in 1992. He also captained the Pakistan team. The former right-handed batsman is quite famous as a commentator.
According to the constitution of the PCB, the Prime Minister is the Chief of Patron in Pakistan cricket. The PCB elects the president from the proposed name received from the Prime Minister. Imran Khan himself does not want Ehsan Mani to be the president. That is why Ramiz Raja’s presidency has become very important.
A few days ago, there was a rumor that Ehsan Mani would be appointed as the president of the PCB. However, it has changed at the behest of the Prime Minister, according to Pakistani media. Although Ramiz Raja did not say anything about it.
Former PCB president Nazim Sethi has demanded the resignation of Ehsan Mani and chief executive Wasim Khan for the failure. Otherwise, he demanded to remove them from power. Ramiz Raja’s name has come up as the president due to his good communication in the international arena.
