Chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) – Ramiz Raja – has vowed to make the cricket board financially strong to end reliance on the International Cricket Council (ICC). Following his meeting with businessman, Arif Habib, the chairman PCB said that the PCB needs the corporate sector’s help for growth.
“I believe we need the corporate sector in cricket for healthy growth. The purpose of meeting businessmen is the same, involving the corporate sector in the game. I have strong plans to make PCB financially strong, we just need assistance and direction to make things fall on the right track,” he said.
Ramiz Raja said that your voice is heard if you are financially stable in the cricket world.
“Cricket has now become money swinger. If you have money, you have a say in the world. We can’t just rely on the ICC, we need to build ourselves financially so strong,” he added.
Raja also shared his thoughts on the England and New Zealand cricket teams’ decision to cancel their scheduled matches in Pakistan.
“What New Zealand and England did, really made me think again. How far will we remain on backfoot? There is a need to make ourselves financially strong otherwise our cricket will go backward,” he stated.
