Former Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Najam Sethi, recently spoke out against Ramiz Raja’s appointment as the new Chairman of PCB.
Sethi suggested that Raja should have resigned from his position as a commentator as soon as the government changed in Pakistan, citing a conflict of interest.
In a recent interview, Sethi stated that he was surprised by Raja’s appointment and criticized his lack of experience in cricket administration.
Sethi also expressed concern over Raja’s previous remarks about the Indian Premier League (IPL), which could harm Pakistan’s relations with India and other cricket-playing nations.
Sethi further questioned Raja’s role as a commentator for a private news channel, stating that it would be difficult for him to remain impartial in his new position as the Chairman of PCB.
He emphasized that Raja should have resigned from his role as a commentator immediately after the government changed hands.
The former PCB chairman’s comments have sparked a debate within the cricketing community, with some supporting Raja’s appointment while others share Sethi’s concerns.
On the other hand, Raja has assured the public that he will remain impartial and transparent in his new role.
