Ramiz Raja engages in banter with Shoaib Malik over retirement remarks

Posted On

Famous Pakistani commentator Ramiz Raja recently gave his views on two veteran Pakistan players, Shoaib Malik and Mohammad Hafeez, and suggested them to retire from the game gracefully. After Ramiz’s advice, Malik came up with a hilarious response. He asked the cricketer-turned-commentator to withdraw the game along with him and Hafeez.


“Yes, @iramizraja bhai agreed. Since all 3 of us are the end of our careers let’s retire gracefully together – I’ll call and let’s plan this for 2022? @MHafeez22” tweeted Malik.

Now, Ramiz has also responded to Malik’s jibe in two tweets, and it seems like he was clearly not happy with the way senior cricketer passed a remark. Ramiz said that he would not stop talking about Pakistan cricket and speak for the betterment of it.


The 57-year-old claimed that he speaks his mind and always wants Pakistan cricket to be back on top.

“@realshoaibmalik @MHafeez22 1-retire gracefully .. from what ?.. speaking my mind on pak cricket? Sticking my neck out for pak cricket ? Wanting pak cricket back at top ? No chance .. won’t be gracefully retiring from that ever Malik Sahib! As for ur post-retirement plans,” Ramiz wrote in his first tweet.

Ramiz also claimed that he doesn’t need a tutorial from people like Malik and Hafeez as he retired from the game as Pakistan captain.


“@realshoaibmalik @MHafeez22 2-would be tough to start commentating in 2022 as that would make you my age almost And talking of careers, don’t need a tutorial from u of all the ppl as history, which is a great teacher, would tell u that I retired while I was Captain of Pak team,” Ramiz added in his second tweet.
