Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja is all set to become Pakistan Cricket Board’s new chairman according to a Cricbuzz report. Ramiz made the confirmation that he has accepted the job. 

"The aim is to reset Pakistan cricket's GPS and will be in pursuit of excellence," he told Cricbuzz on Thursday.

The former skipper would replace Ehsan Mani after the succession process is complete. Mani had refused to accept the offer for a short-term extension. 

Ramiz had met Pakistan PM Imran Khan and presented him with a roadmap about his plans. 

"I did meet with the PM and presented him with a roadmap for how Pakistan cricket can go forward," Raja told ESPNCricinfo earlier.

"It was a cricket-centric discussion on the problems Pakistan cricket is facing and what possible steps can be taken to improve the overall performance. I am glad he called me up and heard me out,” he further said. 

Ramiz has played 57 Tests and 198 ODIs for Pakistan and was a part of the World Cup-winning team in 1992 that was lead by Imran Khan. The right-hander has notched up over 2800 runs in the longer format while scoring 5841 runs in ODIs.
