Rameez Raja wants to Revamp whole Pakistan Cricket System
Rameez Raja, referring to Inzamam-ul-Haq, head of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), who resigned on Wednesday, said he did some things right while others ended up bad for Pakistan cricket.
Our first-class, under-19s, and cricket club have collapsed, so a new system is needed to bring talent to the forefront. He said cricket is not being played in schools because educational institutions are now being set up in houses that lack land on their premises, making gambling difficult.
How we can get players through this system, Ramiz Raja said.
Rameez said we were only getting talent through the Pakistan Super League (PSL). But the selectors selected players for all format tests, one day and twenty years from PSL.
Rameez, however, said that Inzamam brought some talented young people into the mainstream, including Babar Azam, Shaheen Afridi, Imam-ul-Haq and Imad Wasim.
“However, after the inclusion of his nephew Imam in the squadron, Inzamam had to go through a controversy,” he said.
Speaking about Pakistan’s team for the 2019 Cricket World Cup, he said Inzamam did not select a good team.
“The focus on team selection was from the 80s and 90s, which has no place in modern cricket today,” he said.
He added that England formed a formidable team that played the World Cup without fear.
We need to change the mindset of the game and we should focus on incorporating new managers into world-class cricket. He further said that new people are needed for the job.
