Ramiz Raja has been unduly excited about his tenure as PCB chairman ever since he was deposed. Following the conclusions of Justice Qaiyyam, he would have banned Wasim [Akram] and Waqar [Younis] for being tainted by match-fixing claims, despite the fact that he was not even allowed to carry his goods from the office. The most recent volley was his firing of Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar as head coach and bowling coach, respectively, just days before the 2021 T20 world cup.
They received their complete payout for two years. They were treated with nothing but respect. As chairman, I had the authority to terminate them. Even now, there is talk about Mickey Arthur replacing Saqlain Mushtaq. I arranged contracts in such a way that I didn’t want the board to be locked with a coaching arrangement for three years, Ramiz told Samaa TV.
Our agreements were for a year. Misbah and Waqar would have left in January or February in any scenario. We switched management. It wasn’t easy for me. Waqar and I played together and spoke for a long time. Misbah and the CEO exchanged words. The fact that the change happened a week or ten days before the T20 World Cup did not bode well. However, I thought that we could only cooperate with them so far. When I used to provide criticism, I saw a change was needed Ramiz remarked this.
Misbah has previously commented briefly on the matter. Misbah added in the interview, Ramiz bhai came up with his own vision, therefore we opted to respect his decision. We had no disagreements with Ramiz Bhai. We worked together since we were both members of the previous management team, which provided us with a vision. Ramiz Bhai came up with his own concept. We discussed departing since he refused to work with us, he told A Sports.
Misbah wasn’t unhappy in public; in fact, because Ramiz was a cricketer, he hoped for a good stay as PCB chairman. I believe Ramiz bhai is aware of the problems that players are experiencing. He is well aware of this, having been a part of Pakistan cricket for so long. He is the one who can operate more efficiently at PCB‘s office. Ramiz Bhai is quite knowledgeable about everything, from pitches to player finances, and he can move things along. He has been providing analysis for a long time, which helps him establish relationships with various nations.
