Ramiz Raja once again criticized Najam Sethi and this time because of his comments on #AsiaCup2023. It is worth mentioning here that Pakistan is the official host of this year’s event however, the fate of the tournament hangs in balance after India refused to travel to Pakistan owing to political reasons.
#AsiaCup2023: Ramiz Raja Criticizes Najam Sethi
Najam Sethi recently had confirmed that England could possibility be a venue for this year’s Asia Cup. Cricket Pakistan reported Ramiz Raja criticizing Sethi because of his comments. The former chairman was quoted as saying, “I was shocked to hear the chairman PCB saying it would be great to see the Asia Cup being played at Lord’s. Is he mentally stable or not?”
“The whole point of Asia Cup before the World Cup was that the teams get familiar with the conditions of the sub-continent. Another statement that made me angry was Mr chairman telling the press they want to organize PSL season 9 in UAE because there are issues with taxation in Pakistan.”
“At one hand you’re saying that Pakistan is safe for cricket regarding Asia Cup but on the other hand you are saying that PSL should not be conducted in Pakistan. How does that make sense? It took us years to bring the PSL back to Pakistan and to show the world that Pakistan is finally ready to host International cricket but then you want to nullify that? This is disappointing.”
