Pakistan left-arm seamer Wahab Riaz has called out former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja for ignoring his calls and messages.
Wahab has demanded to know why Ramiz never answered him, stating that he is still an active cricketer and has not retired.
The former Pakistan captain was recently replaced by Najam Sethi as PCB chairman.
“I’m a present cricketer, I have not retired. Why did he never answer me?” Wahab told Samaa News as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.

He is now representing the Peshawar Zalmi in the Pakistan Super League (PSL), where he has taken two wickets in his first two games.
The Zalmi’s next match will be against the Quetta Gladiators on Monday.
