Ramiz Raja Calls on Imran Khan to Punish Match Fixers

Following Umar Akmal’s ban, former captain, Ramiz Raja, has urged Prime Minister Imran Khan to take note of corrupt practices in cricket.

The 57-year-old believes that strict legislation to deal with corrupt cricketers is the need the hour and has requested the premier to pass a bill in the parliament to deal with such incidents.

Cricket is one thing that binds the people of Pakistan and no one should be allowed to soil it.

 

He further said that all those involved in spot-fixing or any other illegal activity must get uniform punishment.
