In his media interaction, Ramiz Raja spoke highly of the Pakistan cricket team and the leadership skills of Babar Azam. He praised the team for their hard work and said that Babar Azam owned the team.

Chairman PCB said that he gives them advice but he does not speak to them like a chairman but as a cricketer.

“Whenever I talk to them, I talk to them as a cricketer, not as a chairman. I hope they understand what I try to tell them about cricket and they understand the importance of unity, nationalism and they should never be discouraged after losing,” he added.

Raja backed Hassan Ali and said that such episodes are a nightmare for the players to escape from. “If I was in his place, I would double my fielding efforts,” he said. “He should try not to think much about it. Everyone makes mistakes. I dropped several catches, it is not the end of the world,” he added.

Raja added that Muhammad Rizwan proved what nationalism and playing for the country means.

A report asked that the positive body language of the team implied that they had no pressure from the board. “As long as I am here, players will not have any tension,” he said.
