Ramiz Raja is good to go to be the new director of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). The choice follows a gathering with Prime Minister Imran Khan, who gave the thumbs up for the difference in watch at the PCB. Raja will supplant Ehsan Mani once the progression interaction is finished.
Both Ramiz and Mani met the Prime Minister on Monday (August 23) evening. After the gathering Ramiz, a previous Pakistan commander, told Cricbuzz, ‘I have given him (Imran Khan) my arrangements.

Ramiz affirmed that he has acknowledged the work. “The point is to reset Pakistan cricket’s GPS and will be in quest for greatness,” Raja, who was additionally a Chief Executive Officer of PCB, told Cricbuzz on Thursday (August 26).
In the mean time, Imran is perceived to have asked Mani – whose three-year term finished on Wednesday – to guarantee a smooth progress of force. Mani (76), an accomplished hand in cricket organization, both at the PCB and the International Cricket Council (ICC), was viewed as excessively old for the work, which required high measures of energy, especially at the ICC gathering, where the PCB is left with not many companions.
Likewise Mani’s steady acting against the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), an incredible body at the ICC, didn’t leave him with such a large number of companions in India. Then again, Ramiz has no deficiency of companions in India, which is a benefit for Ramiz.
Ramiz’s arrangement will involve a bit of an interaction. His name first will be sent to the Board of Governors of the PCB, being one of the two chosen people. Following this, there could be a political race assuming another BoG part needs to challenge, yet typically, a PM’s chosen one is probably not going to meet any obstruction. When designated by Imran three years prior, Mani was chosen unopposed. Similarly, Ramiz should discover his direction to the top position.
The subsequent part to be designated by the Prime Minister is accepted to be a prominent financial specialist – Asad Ali Khan. There are seven on the BOG presently – four free chiefs, CEO (Wasim Khan) and two candidates of the Prime Minister.
