In response to Mickey Arthur‘s appointment as director of cricket for the senior men’s team, Ramiz Raja has launched a stinging attack on Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Najam Sethi. Arthur was officially announced by the PCB on Thursday as the men’s team director, a position that will give him a significant say in the planning of the upcoming 50-over World Cup in India.
Ramiz told Cricbuzz, “This is as insane as a clown in a small-town circus”
Raja, a former Pakistani captain, attacked PCB President Sethi over the statement, describing it as “crazy as a clown in a village circus” material.
“A first-of-its-kind cricket coach/director, whose devotion is first to his county job rather than Pakistan cricket, has been chosen to manage Pakistan cricket remotely. Ramiz told Cricbuzz, “This is as insane as a clown in a small-town circus.
The outgoing PCB president also disparaged Sethi, his replacement, calling the 74-year-old “a chairman who doesn’t understand cricket.”
“A cabal of political, petty minded club runners for a management committee to run Pakistan cricket affairs, who are on a salary of Rs 12 lakhs per month,” he claimed, “is headed by a PCB chairman who doesn’t understand cricket and probably wasn’t even good enough to make it to the XI in a club game.”

The men’s squad will receive assistance from Arthur, who led Pakistan as its head coach from 2016 to 2019. Arthur will help the team with game planning, preparation, and execution.
He led Pakistan to victory in Tests and T20 Internationals and contributed to the team’s ICC Champions Trophy triumph in 2017.
