Good morning, *|MERGE1|*. It’s August 27. Jumma Mubarak. 

So, it’s official now: Ramiz Raja will be the next chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). It will be a little weird to see him as Chairman PCB after his long career as a cricket commentator. I wonder will he bid farewell to commentary? I hope he does.

It will be sunny today too! It’s been the longest summer, I swear.
