Mohammad Aamir on Ramiz Raja: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief Ramiz Raja had said that he will not take a single penny during his tenure. Former Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Amir has reacted to this statement of Rameez Raja. On Rameez Raja’s statement, Amir replied that PCB chairman does not get salary, but there are many benefits.
Rameez Raja gave this statement in a program on Wednesday. On Rameez Raja’s statement, Amir said that the post of PCB chairman comes with benefits, although he is not completely sure whether it is so. Amir tweeted, ‘As far as I have heard, PCB chairman does not have a salary but there are benefits, maybe I have heard it wrong.’
Rameez Raja, in his address to club presidents on Wednesday, said that he had sacrificed a career to hold the position and he did so out of respect. According to the PCB chief, I have come to this cricket board without any salary. I will not get a single penny for the next three years. I have sacrificed my ongoing career to hold this position. The car I have is a 2008 model. I don’t regret that I don’t have a big house or a fancy car or money. Sometimes you have to play an innings to earn respect.
