Former Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman and renowned commentator Ramiz Raja, on Tuesday, revealed that he will not be available for the entire Pakistan Super League (PSL) 9.

Taking to X, formerly Twitter, Ramiz thanked his fans for the wishes on his return to PSL but revealed that by the time he was approached for the commentary role, he had already signed a deal with Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

The renowned commentator, however, shared that he will be available to commentate in the latter stage of the tournament.

“Thank you all for your PSL comeback wishes. I am humbled. I had already signed up for BPL when I got the offer of PSL so will be joining the last leg of Pindi [Rawalpindi] and Khi [Karachi]. Let’s hope it’s a great tournament,” stated Ramiz.

Earlier this week, the PCB unveiled a star-studded commentary panel for the PSL 9, featuring former Australia captain Michael Clarke, who is all set to make his HBL PSL debut behind the mic.

42-year-old Clarke has been an active broadcaster after hanging up his boots as a player.

The foreign commentators’ roster involves the dynamic Ian Bishop, known for his insightful and gripping commentary, along with Danny Morrison, Simon Doull, Pommie Mbangwa, Mark Butcher, Dominic Cork and Mike Haysman.
