Lahore:Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) chief executive Ramiz Raja has resigned, saying he wanted to pursue his full-time commitments as a cricket commentator.

Raja, 41, a former Pakistan captain, was appointed chief executive of the PCB in July 2003 and he was often criticised in the media for doing professional commentary alongside his honorary job.

PCB chairman Shaharyar Khan said he had accepted Raja's resignation and relieved him to devote himself to commentary, cricket officials said.

"Due to excessive commitments in the season ahead I thought it would be appropriate to leave the post for someone who could do the job full-time," Raja said on Saturday.

Raja is currently in Galle doing commentary on the South Africa-Sri Lanka cricket Test match.
