The newly elected Pakistan Cricket Board chairman Ramiz Raja has said resumption of bilateral assignments with India is “impossible right now” and he is “not in a hurry” for it either as his focus is solely on his country’s domestic circuit at this point.
The 59-year-old, who formally took over y after being elected unanimously, also acknowledged that being chairman of the PCB is one of the toughest jobs in cricket.
“It is a very big challenge and a lot of boxes had to be ticked before the prime minister (Imran Khan) decided to give me this tough job,” he said in a press conference here.
Asked about the possibility of revival of bilateral series between Pakistan and India, Raja said, “Impossible right now…”
“…because the sporting model has been spoiled by politics and right now it is a status quo and we are not in a hurry on this issue because we have to focus on our domestic and local cricket,” he added.
Raja was a member of the 1992 World Cup winning Pakistan team that was captained then by the now Prime Minister of Pakistan Imran Khan.
