The 43-year-old stated that when Raja appoint as PCB chairman last year. He had high hopes, but the issues have yet to be addressed.
“When Ramiz Raja was elected PCB chairman, I expect things to improve, but that has not been the case thus far. But, like his predecessors, he is passing the time and enjoying his stay “He continued.
While there have been rumors that Raja may be fired by the ruling government, he recently state that he intends to continue as PCB chairman.
“It’s been two months now and we can’t live on speculations. If something had to happen it would have happened by now. Look unless you give continuity a chance nothing will improve in Pakistan cricket,” Raja had said.
