LAHORE: PCB chairman Ramiz Raja seeks good relations with Prime Minister Shahbaz after former premier Imran Khan 'cut off contact with him'. 

In a press briefing here on Friday, Raja disclosed that Khan cut off contact with him soon after he was removed from the premiership. 

"Imran Bhai cut off contact with me. I haven't talked to him for long time now," Raja responded to a query about his relations with his former captain. 

However, Raja showed respect to the current PCB's patron-in-chief and emphasized building relations with him despite speculations of his removal from the PCB office. 

"We can't live around speculations. I believe there is a need for continuity apart from political differences," he said. 

"See, our prime minister is our patron-in-chief, we have requested his time and if he meets us, we will tell him about our work. I think there is no need for ego here as, in the end, we all want upliftment of cricket," the ex-cricketer said. 

"If there is anything in the constitution about the removal of PCB chairman every time, go ahead with it. Otherwise, fulfilling individual desires won't work in favor of the game,

"The ball is in the court of him [PM Shahbaz]," the PCB boss concluded. 

It must be noted here that PM Shahbaz had met former PCB chairman Khalid Mahmood a couple of days ago. Reportedly, PCB chairmanship was on top of the discussion during their meeting.
