Ramiz Raja 'turns down' offer to work as PCB COO
Islamabad, Nov 26 (ANI): Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has reportedly turned down an offer from the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to work as its chief operating officer (COO).
"Ramiz politely thanked the chairman for his offer and turned it down saying he does not have the time due to his prior commitments as a commentator and expert in the next few months," the Daily Times quoted a reliable source in the PCB, as saying.
Nevertheless, he has given a "blueprint" to the new chairman on how to improve the Pakistan cricket structure, and the PCB's functioning.
"He wants the chairman to immediately appoint a cricket committee made up of former greats who can submit a list of things that need to be done to improve things in the Pakistan cricket set-up," he added.
After his retirement as a cricketer, Ramiz succeeded in performing his role as a commentator, expert and host in Pakistan and abroad.
He is presently working as a commentator in the ongoing Pakistan-Sri Lanka series. He has also worked before as the chief executive of the board in 2003-2004 when Tauqir Zia and Sharharyar Khan were heading the PCB. (ANI)
