Ramiz Raja Faces the Heat for Controversial Comments on Zimbabwe Series

Former opener and current cricket commentator, Ramiz Raja, came under fire on social media for his comments regarding the Pakistan and Zimbabwe Test series. Ramiz said that the Pakistani fans would switch to other sports if such series keep happening in international cricket. He added that Zimbabwe should stop playing Test cricket for some time and turn their focus solely towards limited-overs cricket.

His comments came after Pakistan comfortably won the two-match Test series, registering an innings victory in both matches as a weak Zimbabwe side was unable to put up a fight against a solid Pakistan Test side.

Zimbabwe was unlucky throughout the tour, as they had lost key five first-team players through injury and various reasons, including the captain Sean Williams, Craig Ervine, Sikandar Raza, and Kyle Jarvis.

Ramiz’s comments did not sit well with cricket fans, and experts reminding him of various such series in the past.

Let’s have a look at the social media reactions:

Famed cricket writer, Jarrod Kimber, reminded Ramiz of the transformation of the number one Test side in the world.

Renowned cricket journalist, Faizan Lakhani, pointed out Zimbabwe’s Test record against Pakistan. Pakistan drew the Test series 1-1 on their last Test tour of the country, in 2013.

Zimbabwean journalist, Adam Theo, wasn’t pleased with Ramiz’s comments, especially after Zimbabwe was the first international team to tour Pakistan in 2015, after the 2009 attack on the Sri Lankan team.
