Former PCB chairman and cricketer Ramiz Raja has asked the Pakistan Cricket Board to continue his pension after stepping down from his office as PCB Chairman.
The former Pakistan captain wishes to avail his right to pension from Pakistan Cricket as he is a retired cricketer. According to recent reports, the former chairman of Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will get Rs. 154,000 from PCB.
Ramiz, during his reign as PCB chairman, had increased the pension from Rs. 54,000 to 154,000 as he believed that former cricketers should be respected for their services to the country.
It has been reported that Ramiz Raja has also signed the PCB code of conduct to continue receiving his pension. The code of conduct prohibits him from speaking against the PCB on any public channel, including YouTube.
The former PCB Chairman had given statements against the current management after he was removed from the board as he had differences with the new PCB Chairman Najam Sethi.
Ramiz Raja served as PCB chairman from September 2021 to December 2022 and was recently replaced by Najam Sethi for the role.
