Pakistani Twitterati is congratulating former cricketer-turned commentator Ramiz Raja on becoming Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman. Raja is in the running for PCB’s top slot but there is no confirmation yet if he will indeed be appointed or not.
Journalist Ejaz Wasim Bakhri turned to Twitter and shared a video of Raja’s car entering Prime Minister Imran Khan’s office to meet him.
While people can be heard saying that look the new chairman is going.
Taking to Twitter, Fakhar-e-Alam congratulated the former cricketer.
Many tweeted that he has already become the PCB Chairman.
On the other hand, Journalist Shahid Hashmi claimed that Mani will continue as the Board’s chairman.
In another tweet, Shahid Hashmi said: “As per PCB constitution Mani’s second tenure will be three years but since he doesn’t want to serve the full term a new chairman can come next year.”
Journalist Absa Komal also shared on Twitter that PM Khan has “selected Ramiz Raja as Chairman PCB.”
Meanwhile, it has been reported that members of the PCB’s Board of Governors (BoG) will give votes to the nominated members and the new chairman will be elected. Raja will serve as a board member and then the Chairman will be selected after re-election.
Ex-Pakistan wicketkeeper-batsman Kamran Akmal has backed Ramiz Raja. Here’s what he said: “He hasn’t been going for commentary duties in the last couple of series and that gave us some signals for the future. A cricketer coming in as a chairman would benefit domestic cricket. It will bring in money.”
People also shared jokes and memes after this news.
