Ep.28: Pakistan Cricket Board & the Media Have a Hostile Relationship. What Caused the Rift?

Season 2 | Episode 28
19m | Aug 5, 2022

At a recent press conference, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chairman Ramiz Raja shut down a reporter who attempted to ask a question about players not being allowed to interact with reporters. It may appear to be just an anomaly, but it is actually a symptom of a larger problem: the growing mistrust and a rift between the PCB and the Pakistani media. In this Crickellectuals Podcast episode we analyze some of the causes of this rift and the possible recommendations that can forge a positive way forward.
