Ramiz Raja, former captain of the Pakistan Cricket team, was on Monday elected “unanimously and unopposed” the new chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), the PCB said in a statement. He will be replacing Ehsan Mani, who headed the board for three years. 

“I am thankful to all of you for electing me as the PCB chairman and look forward to working with you to ensure Pakistan cricket continues to thrive and grow stronger, both on and off the field," the statement quoted him as saying in the meeting of the board of governors.

After his nomination, he said his focus will be to introduce in the team the same culture, mindset, attitude, and approach that once made Pakistan one of the most feared cricket-playing nations.

Looking after the welfare of our past and present cricketers will be among his priorities, he said. “The game has and will always be about the cricketers and, as such, they deserve more recognition and respect from their parent institution,” he was quoted as saying by Dawn.
