Ramiz will replace Ehsan Mani, who completed his three-year tenure at the office last month
Both Mani and Raja had met Prime Minister Imran Khan, who is also former World Cup winning captain and patron-in-chief of the board, for smooth handover
Rumours were circulating that former Pakistan Test captain Ramiz Raja will take over as the new chairman of the PCB
Apparently Pakistan PM Imran Khan, under whom Ramiz played, feels it is time a former player ran the cricket affairs in the country.
The confirmation came in the form of a statement by Ehsan Mani in which he outlined plans for next year and the Pakistan Super League
The PCB said that it would take action against those employees found to be responsible for not enforcing the bio-secure bubble properly
Mani also informed that Sri Lanka will host the Asia Cup in 2022, ruling out any chances of the continental event being staged this year in June.
The COVID-19 case comes just a few days after the PCB was forced to postpone the Pakistan Super League
Pakistan Cricket Board wants written assurance from India that its players and fans will get visas to participate in the T20 World Cup in India in October-November
Mani said Pakistan would play around nine Tests, 20 ODIs and 39 T20 matches as there would be no shortage of cricket for players.
Ehsan Mani said there was some kind of "politics introduced" by BCCI, Cricket Australia and England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) in the ICC
Terming the BCCI as "unreliable", PCB chief Ehsan Mani said Pakistan cricket is vibrant and strong enough despite not playing any bilateral series with India for long
A few days back, Ehsan Mani had disagreed with Sourav Ganguly who had said that India can't play in Pakistan -- the designated host country -- due to security concerns and that the Asia Cup will be held in the UAE
PCB boss Ehsan Mani made the remarks after his team celebrated Test cricket's return to Pakistan with a 263-run mauling of Sri Lanka
Misbah-Ul-Haq reportedly wants his salary to be in line with his predecessor Mickey Arthur, but the PCB is said to be reluctant to spend big on a local coach
This will be Ehsan Mani's second stint as F&CA (Finance & Commercial Affairs) chairman. He was appointed as the ICC's first F&CA chairman in 1996 and served until 2002, negotiating the apex body's first-ever broadcast rights deal then worth approximately USD 550 million.
After losing to India in the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2019, Pakistan and Sarfaraz Ahmed were trolled and criticised by countless people. Now it has been revealed that PCB Chairman Ehsan Mani has given his support to the national team captain.
India and Pakistan have not played any bilateral series since January 2013, but will face off in the marquee clash of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 at Old Trafford, Manchester. It is one of the several meetings between the arch-rivals in the multilateral events
