In a media conference after the 69th meeting of the PCB Board of Governors, Pakistan Cricket Board's chairman Ramiz Raja disclosed that the former Prime Minister Imran Khan has cut off ties with him after he was removed from office.

“He cut off contact with me. I haven’t talked to him for a long time now," Raja said, in response to a reporter's question.

Ramiz Raja, a friend of the former PM, under whose captaincy he played during the 1992 World Cup, was brought in as PCB chairman after Ehsan Mani’s tenure ended last year.

"We can't live around speculation. I believe there is a need for continuity apart from political differences," Raja was quoted as saying by Pakistani media. 

"See, our prime minister is our patron-in-chief, we have requested his time and if he meets us, we will tell him about our work. I think there is no need for ego here as, in the end, we all want the upliftment of cricket," the ex-cricketer said.
"If there is anything in the constitution about the removal of the PCB chairman every time, go ahead with it. Otherwise, fulfilling individual desires won't work in favour of the game," he added. "The ball is in his court," Raja said, referring to PM Shehbaz Sharif.
