Rameez Raja

India Cricket Live The younger brother of Wasim Raja, Rameez has become more noted as a cricket commentator than he was as an opening batsman or Pakistan captain. Urbane, affable and well-spoken in English - the Rajas' father was Pakistan's top civil servant - Ramiz has become the voice of Pakistan cricket. As a right-hand batsman who favoured the leg side, he never scored the runs he should have - only two centuries in 57 Tests - and seemed to have disappeared, only to be brought back as captain after Salim Malik when the match-fixing controversy began. It was widely rumoured that certain players found his integrity inconvenient, and worked to have him removed shortly after Pakistan managed to lose their first home series, under Rameez, to Sri Lanka in 1995-96. He somehow managed to combine his role as a television commentator with that of chief executive of the Pakistan Cricket Board, although that uneasy conflict was not popular in all circles. He resigned from the post of the CEO in August 2004 citing increasing media commitments as the reason for his decision.
