‘I am Not Going Anywhere,’ Says PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja

KARACHI: Ruling out any uncertainty over his future in the office, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja Wednesday said that he was not going anywhere.

Addressing a press conference at the National Stadium in Karachi, Ramiz Raja blamed the media for spreading speculations about his exit.

“There is no uncertainty. You people [journalists] are the ones creating this uncertainty. I know the inside issues and nothing is going to happen,” he added.

The former cricketer said it has been a tradition that when a new government is formed, the board’s chief is changed, but it was not a constitutional or legal requirement to change the PCB chairman.

“I am not going anywhere; should I write it on a stamp paper and give it to you?” he asked a journalist who asked him about his future. The PCB chairman added: “I know you people want me gone as it will give you headlines.”

On his future after the conclusion of his term as the PCB chairman, the former batter said he might not be a commentator as he has “fought with almost everyone”.
