Former veteran taunts former PCB chairman Rameez Raja
‘Raja’s recent rhetoric has only increased his troubles’
new Delhi. Rameez Raja has recently been removed from the post of chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board and Najam Sethi has been entrusted with this responsibility. Since then, Rameez Raja has opened a front against PCB. They are constantly blaming PCB. Now former Pakistan batsman Salman Butt has targeted Rameez Raja for this behaviour. He said that Raja should have avoided creating unnecessary ruckus after being removed from the post of PCB chairman.
Salman Butt said on his YouTube channel, Rameez, after being removed from the post of PCB chairman, is behaving like a small child after snatching a toy. He further said that Rameez Raja was lucky that even after coming to power, the new government gave him a chance to work as PCB chairman for several months. He did not directly remove the king, but also supported him.
Rameez Raja was not removed suddenly: Butt
Butt further said that the talk of removing Rameez Raja was going on for a long time, he has not been removed suddenly. I think his recent statements have only soured relations between him and the PCB.
‘Rameez should do commentary now’
This left-handed opening batsman said that people have been dismissed earlier also. But, no one made such statements or allegations after being removed from the post. Rameez should refrain from such rhetoric and show some decency. He should now focus on commentating.
Raja, who was sacked as PCB chairman last week, leveled serious allegations against the new committee headed by Najam Sethi. In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Rameez had said that the new board members are not interested in the betterment of Pakistan cricket and only want rights. He had said in his video that Najam Sethi had tweeted at 2 o’clock in the night that Rameez Raja was out. Is it your respect for a former captain? I was not even allowed to go to the office and collect my belongings.
The PCB also hit back at Rameez Raja’s allegations and threatened legal action against him.
