Former wicketkeeper Moin Khan has stated that the government should inquire whether Ramiz Raja wishes to continue as chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board. Whether they want to replace him, there should be no problem.
In an interview with Cricket Pakistan, Moin stated:
The PCB chairman is automatically chosen based on the nomination of the Patron-in-Chief. As a cricketer, I believe the new government should determine whether Ramiz Raja wishes to continue in office. If they want to select a new candidate, that is completely within the cricketing board’s constitution and should be no problem.
In response to a question about departmental cricket, Moin stated that he is opposed to its abolition because it has forced thousands of cricketers to lose their jobs.
I continue to oppose the decision, and this is something with which I’m afraid I have to disagree. It is wrong for a cricketer to see other cricketers go unemployed. I still hold the same opinion, and I believe that cricketers should be employed in various departments.
Speaking about the upcoming T20 World Cup in Australia, Moin Khan stated that while Pakistan’s record in Australia has been poor, the current setup has the potential to reverse this trend.
Our record in Australia isn’t particularly impressive, but I’m optimistic about our chances. We have a good group of players; our fast bowlers are better, our batting strength is admirable, and our spin department in limited-overs is a bonus. In T20, our overall combination is excellent.
The former cricketer stated that he is grateful to God for the opportunity to contribute and that if the cricket board requires his services, he will be available.
“I am grateful to the Almighty that I can contribute.” I already have a grassroots cricket academy to assist young cricketers. So I’m already involved in activities that I’m proud of. “I’ve always maintained that if the board requires my services, I’ll be there,” he explained.
