Lahore (Oct 31, 2019): Pakistan’s cricketer-turned-commentator Ramiz Raja, in a Youtube video, lashed out at recent reports of an impending comeback of disgraced opener Sharjeel Khan into the national side.
The 57-year-old revealed that he was saddened by the Pakistan society which he believed valued skills and talent above character and credibility.
“I am reading reports in newspapers that he [Sharjeel Khan] might be brought back into the team because he has faced his punishment. I am very saddened because our society and cricket fraternity is always eager to bring these types of individuals back into the system, ” said Raja. “These individuals have polluted it and tainted the name of the country. It seems like we are very happy to bring these crooks back because we don’t value character and credibility as much as talent and skills and we think that these can help Pakistan cricket win matches which is a very short term approach.”
