June 3, 2020

LAHORE: Former captain turned commentator Ramiz Raja has said he did not have a temperament so he won’t be opting for coaching Pakistan in future.

Pakistan cricketers, former and current, usually find a way to connect with the fans and this time around Ramiz Raja, who was chief executive during Shaharyar Khan’s first tenure in 2003-04 spoke on a Youtube Channel.

The ex-skipper made it clear that he has no interest in coaching the Pakistani side in future, a post that currently Misbah-ul-Haw holds.Ramiz said that he doesn’t “have the temperament” and is not “cut out for it right now”. “Well you see maybe I don’t have the temperament for this [coaching],” Ramiz said. He further explained, “You know when my son comes up to me and says my straight drive is not working, I say go and ask your mum.

“I don’t think I’m cut out for it right now.” Pakistan cricket is going through a lot of changes at the moment. Recently star batsman Babar Azam was made the skipper of the limited-overs sides.
