Protest on Ramiz Raja’s comment intensfies
Former Pakistan captain Ramiz Raja’s criticism of Bangladesh cricket and its players has irked the Bangladesh fans a great deal. Visibly not a fan of Bangladesh cricket, Ramiz’s latest round of criticism though is no surprise given his history of dishing out offensive comments.
Ramiz, who is part of the commentary team of the Star Sports network covering the ongoing 2015 ICC World Cup, openly offended Bangladesh as a country as well as its cricket team several times during their Pool A opener against Afghanistan last Wednesday at Manuka Oval in Canberra.
Those who watched the game between Bangladesh and Afghanistan, it was clearly evident for all to see that the 52-year old commentator was favouring the Afghans from the very first delivery of the match. And as far as the Tigers are concerned, they were on the receiving end of some unfair and baseless hostility.
Ramiz started out by mocking the nicknames of the Bangladesh cricketers. The former skipper also made ill comments regarding the traffic system of Bangladesh. Ramiz went as far as to question the role played by the Bangladesh Cricket Board towards the development of cricket in the country.
