Pak PM Imran Khan nominates Rameez Raja as PCB chairman


Imran Khan and Raja were teammates on the 1992 World Cup squad that beat England in the final.

Former Pakistan captain and renowned cricket commentator Rameez Raja is all set to become the new chairman of the country’s cricket board.

Prime Minister Imran Khan, in his role as patron of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), nominated Rameez Raja to the governing board on Friday after Ehsan Mani declined to accept a short-term extension when his three-year term expired this week.


Imran Khan had met with both Ehsan Mani and Rameez Raja before nominating the former test opener. The patron’s nominee traditionally gets elected chairman, as Mani was three years ago.

Imran Khan and Rameez Raja were teammates on the 1992 World Cup squad that beat England in the final.

The 59-year-old Rameez Raja had told reporters that during his meeting with Kahn he highlighted the inconsistent performances of the team in international matches.


Rameez Raja scored 2,833 runs in 57 test matches and 5,841 runs in 198 ODIs before quitting in 1997. He also served as chief executive of the PCB but established his name more when he took up commentary and became the “voice of Pakistan.” He also has a YouTube channel with over 1.5 million subscribers.
