Ramiz Raja holds the view that Pakistan players who are close to 40 years old should not be playing in the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
Explaining why, he feels it is harming the development of young up-and-coming players in the country. He noted that due to “friendships”, the senior players are getting picked instead of youngsters who could be the next big thing.
The 60-year-old has called for an end to such practices as he wants to see the future stars of Pakistan featuring in the PSL.
“I strongly believe Pakistan Super League should not be meant for players, who are close to 40 years in age. We put the careers of young cricketers and future stars [at] stake just because of friendships,” Ramiz, a former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman, said on his YouTube channel as quoted by Cricket Pakistan.
