Lashing out at PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja’s insurance policies, former Pakistan check captain Salman Butt stated that the chairman does now not know anything else about junior stage cricket.

“PCB is making plans to carry Pakistan Junior League in response to T20 structure for that age workforce which has a Global Cup of fifty overs within the world enviornment. There will likely be simplest a few gamers who will achieve the extent of PSL in the course of the Pakistan Junior League,” he stated.

Simplest the ones home gamers will have the ability to earn as much as Rs5 million every year who will function in each and every fit of each and every structure in a home season. On the other hand, in reality that barely ten gamers are named in each and every structure of the home season.”

“What in regards to the monetary long term of the ones gamers whom PCB does now not imagine to play all 3 codecs?” requested Salman Butt. He stated Ramiz Raja is not able to inform your entire fact to the cricket fraternity of Pakistan.

“Ramiz Raja believes in kingship the place no person is allowed to invite him counter questions, now not even press or consultants of that box. He does now not wish to solution somebody.”

Salman Butt published that throughout the remaining excursion to Bangladesh, the PCB chairman had requested captain Babar Azam to turn him the pitch on a video name.

“The chairman is meddling within the problems with the nationwide workforce. Is the arena’s primary batter blind to the best way to do a pitch inspection {that a} chairman of the board is calling him to have a video name so he can check out the pitch for determination making? How would have Babar Azam felt when Ramiz Raja would have requested him for a video name for the sake of pitch inspection?”
