Last week, Rameez Raja was sacked as chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Rameez was tossed out after Pakistan lost to England 0-3 in the home Test series; this was the Babar Azam-led side’s second home defeat in the longest format this year; in March they lost 0-1 to Australia .
During Rameez tenure as Pakistan Cricket Board chief, Pakistan played the 2021 T20 World Cup semi-final and the 2022 T20 World Cup final. Rameez insists that Pakistan’s performances were ‘outstanding’ in white-ball cricket and forced India to make changes in its cricketing setup.
‘We gave outstanding performances in white-ball cricket. We played the Asia Cup final, India didn’t play that. India, a billion-dollar industry, was left behind. They fired their chief selector, selection committee, changed the captain because they couldn’t digest how Pakistan went ahead of them’ Rameez told Suno
However, Rameez claimed he empowered Babar Azam that led to the captain’s strong performances.
He stated that ‘I tried my level best to keep this team united. I empowered Babar Azam. Cricket is one of those rare sports where captaincy is relevant,’ ‘If your captain is powerful, results will come, and we have given results.’
