I am very saddened, says Ramiz Raja on Sharjeel’s comeback
Former Pakistan cricketer-cum-commentator Ramiz Raja lashed out at recent reports of comeback of tainted opener Sharjeel Khan into the Pakistan cricket team.
While sharing his views on his Youtube channel, Raja said that he was shocked by the Pakistan society which he believed valued skills and talent above character and credibility.
“I am reading reports in newspapers that 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.
He added that “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.”
