Ramiz Raja directs PCB employees to immediately reduce board’s expenses

Lahore: Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja has ordered board’s employees to reduce expenses, ARY Sports reported.

Ramiz spoke to the board’s employees which included its directors, lower management and ground staff members at the Imran Khan Enclosure in Gaddafi Stadium two days ago.

Ramiz emphasized reducing expenses and save costs, adding that he had been told by the prime minister himself how he saves expenses at the Prime Minister House and the Prime Minister Office. He also gave an indirect message to the high paid people in hushed words.

“We have to cut the expenses of the board. Have one cup of tea instead of two, use the air conditioner less and turn off the lights when you leave your offices,” Ramiz told employees.

Former captain’s only aim is to make the Pakistan team as the best one in the world. “If our team does not become the number one team in the world, there is no reason for all of us to stay here. We have to work to justify our presence here.”

Ramiz concluded by saying that cricket has to reform at the grassroots level, including the improvement of pitches across Pakistan.
