Wasim and Ramiz withdrew names from ML

The two veterans and current commentators Wasim Akram and Ramiz Raja have withdrew their names from the Master League and now will not take part in any of the match played. Instead both will appear in Pakistan Super League.

This new came as a shocker for most because Wasim Akram in particular was the main catch towards the Master League and during the events organized in the past few months, Wasim was given a red carpet welcome and a high stature.

The Master League will take place in the UAE next year. Both Wasim and Ramiz were a part of this league but now there are some heavy change of plans from both the players.

The sources have said that the two players didn’t sign any contract with the Master League and just a verbal yes to the administration of the league. At the same time the Pakistan Cricket board announced the dates of their league.

The dates collided with the ones set by the Master League and with that PCB asked the two players to represent the league as the Ambassadors. It was a tough call for both the former captains of Pakistan cricket team.

The two decided to stay with the country’s name and signed a three year contract with the PCB for performing the duties of Ambassadors for PSL. Wasim and Ramiz will be seen in Doha, Qatar where the PSL will be played from February 4 till February 24.

This news will now definitely hurt the brand showcasing of the Master League. The organizers however have said that the Master league will be played as per the scheduled dates and it is said to know that Wasim and Ramiz will not be a part of it now.

Wasim and Ramiz have been spotted on a number of occasions in PCB Head Office in Lahore. Ramiz even talked to media a few times while Wasim kept his silence on the topic for now. But a source close to both the paler said that the two were really happy with their new job.

PSL will showcase 24 matches with 5 different teams representing different regions of Pakistan. There will be a whole lot of international players playing in this league as per an official. The league will setup a new standards in international cricket.

PCB is making sure that the league gets a huge success for which first they put a lot of money in the contracts and later appointed the likes of Wasim and Ramiz as the league Ambassadors. Both moves are really smart enough to catch the eyes of international players.
