Meanwhile, Former Test captain and renowned commentator Rameez Raja is set to replace Ehsan Mani as the next chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board, source said on Saturday. Raja didn’t respond to calls and messages but media reports said that Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is also patron-in-chief of the board has decided against giving Mani extension after his term ends this month.

Apparently Imran Khan, himself a former captain under whom Rameez played the 1992 World Cup, feels it is time a former player runs the cricket affairs in the country. Another source said Ehsan Mani had also expressed reluctance to continue for another term due to health issues. The government and the board have already appointed a retired judge, Azmat Sheikh as the election commissioner to conduct the election process for the chairman’s post.
