Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja has been elected as the new chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) unopposed on Monday.
The PCB’s Election Commissioner Justice (retd) Sheikh Azmat Saeed conducted the election.
He presided over the special meeting to elect the 36th PCB Chairman.
Wasim Khan, Asad Ali Khan, and other governing board members also attended the meeting.
The former captain addressed the PCB Board of Governors after his election to the chairman post:
“I am thankful to all of you for electing me as the PCB chairman and look forward to working with you to ensure Pakistan cricket continues to thrive and grow stronger, both on and off-the-field,” he said.
“One of my key focuses will be to help introduce in the Pakistan men’s cricket team the same culture, mind-set, attitude, and approach that once made Pakistan one of the most feared cricket playing nations,” he said.
“As an organisation, we all need to get behind the national team and provide them the desired assistance and support so that they can produce that brand of cricket, which the fans also expect from them each time they step onto the field of play,” Ramiz Raja added.
“Obviously, as a former cricketer, my other priority will be to look into the welfare of our past and present cricketers. The game has and will always be about the cricketers and, as such, they deserve more recognition and respect from their parent institution,” he added.
