Contributions of Ramiz Raja to Pakistan Cricket

Ramiz Raja is gearing up for a triumphant return to the commentary box, as cricket enthusiasts eagerly await his captivating voice and profound understanding of the game during the upcoming Asia Cup and World Cup 2023 in India.

After assuming the prestigious role of Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Ramiz Raja temporarily bid adieu to his commentary duties. During his one-year tenure at the helm of PCB, the national team, under his astute leadership, achieved remarkable success by securing a spot in the finals of both the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup 2022.

In December of the previous year, Ramiz Raja gracefully passed the baton to former PCB Chairman, Najam Sethi, who took charge as the interim head of the PCB management committee. However, Ramiz’s departure from the position of Chairman was marred by controversy as he was abruptly sacked without prior notice. Furthermore, to the dismay of fans, he was even deprived of the opportunity to showcase his expertise in the commentary box after his removal.

In the One Day Internationals (ODIs), he played a staggering 198 matches, accumulating 5,841 runs with an average of 32.1. His contributions to the sport have left an indelible mark on the cricketing fraternity.
