DUBAI: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Ramiz Raja is currently in Dubai to watch the highly anticipated Pakistan-Sri Lanka Final as he hopes Pakistan will lift the trophy.
Speaking to reporters, Raja said he was “nervous and tense” and felt similar to what fans experienced due to Babar Azam and co’s unpredictable performance at the T20 Asia Cup 2022.
“Pakistan Team nai mera dna kharab kardia hai [Pakistan team has disturbed my DNA]”, the PCB chairman said, adding that he didn’t feel such pressure even during his playing days.
“I’m happy with their performance. You see, me and the fans want them to play competitive cricket regardless of the results,” he added.
Responding to a question about implementing something special in the team’s successful run since taking charge as PCB chief, Raja gave full credit to the players. “I haven’t done anything. It’s all down to their hard work and dedication. They are united and I hope they win tonight,” he said.
He also praised Babar’s captaincy throughout the T20 Asia Cup 2022.
