As per reports in Cricket Pakistan, a few government officials weren’t happy with the national team’s performance on the tour of England. While Pakistan faced a 0-3 whitewash in the ODI series, they could only win a solitary T20I in Nottingham out of three matches. This led to Mani informing PM Imran Khan, who won the 1992 World Cup for Pakistan as captain, of his decision to step down.

On Monday, August 23, Raja had an interaction with Imran Khan regarding taking Pakistan cricket forward. Raja had also served as PCB’s Chief Executive Officer (CEO) between 2003 and 2004.

“I have given him (Imran Khan) my plans. He will make a call. The aim is to reset Pakistan crickets GPS and will be in pursuit of excellence. Pakistan cricket needs a new direction as our rankings in all three formats indicate our cricket is not improving as the prime minister wanted,” Raja was quoted by Cricbuzz.

The decision to make Raja the next PCB chairman was made three days later and Prime Minister Imran Khan – who is also the PCB patron-in-chief, has green signaled Raja’s appointment as PCB chairman.
