Former Pakistan cricketer Ramiz Raja has been elected as the new chairman of PCB. Prime Minister Imran Khan selected him for this post. He has taken over the post in place of Ehsan Mani. After assuming the post, Rameez Raja gave a speech, to which the reaction of former stormy fast bowler Shoaib Akhtar has come.
In a show, Shoaib Akhtar said that I felt that he (Rameez) seemed a bit confused while giving his speech and touching on some topics. He wants Babar Azam to emulate Imran Khan and then he also wants an inquiry by keeping an eye on Babar Azam’s moves which will not make him a fearless captain.
Akhtar also said that from what I have seen it seems that Rameez Bhai will be tough on Babar Azam and will try to toughen him. But my humble request is that please do not remove him from the captaincy.
Rameez Raja increased the salary of the players
Rameez Raja has started his work as soon as he became the PCB chairman. He first decided to increase the salary of the players. The players of domestic cricket used to get forty thousand rupees per month, which has now been increased to 1 lakh forty thousand rupees per month.
Apart from this, the salary of centrally contracted players of Pakistan Cricket has been increased by one lakh rupees. Along with this, Rameez Raja has said that players should play freely and give their 100 percent in every match.
Shoaib Akhtar had also attacked the PCB regarding the Pakistani T20 team. Apart from this, Akhtar had also called him a coward while giving his reaction to Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis leaving the coaching post. After Akhtar’s rhetoric, former Pakistani captain Wasim Akram said that Akhtar has no good manners at all. People should not pay heed to Akhtar’s words.
