Ramiz: Afridi shouldn’t work as chief selector in such environment
|| CF DESK ||
Former Pakistan cricketer Ramiz Raja was replaced as chairman by Najam Sethi and Shahid Afridi was named interim chief selector of the men's national team, where he was joined by former teammate Abdul Razzaq and Rao Iftikhar Anjum.
Since then, there has been a war of words between Ramiz and the PCB, with the cricket board threatening to sue the ex-cricketer.
Despite the warning, Ramiz has been vocal about his chilly relationship with the current regime, and in a recent interaction, he even suggested that Afridi resign from his position.
"In my opinion he shouldn't work in such environment. I can only suggest this. If I have to join any institution, I'll do a bit of research. Who is the boss, who are his subordinates, will I be comfortable or not, will I get any reward, why do I want to work, what is the purpose?" Ramiz told in a TV show.
Ramiz was fired as PCB chairman after Pakistan's humiliating defeat against England in a home Test series.
Meanwhile, if we look at Afridi he has already taken some bold decisions with the latest being the promotion of wicketkeeper-batter Sarfaraz Ahmed to playing XI from the bench.
Sarfaraz featured in both the Tests against New Zealand, and emerged as Pakistan's standout player on both occasions.
