Rameez Hasan Raja (born 14 August 1962 in Lyallpur (now Faisalabad), Pakistan) is a former Pakistani cricketer who is now a commentator and has become the voice of Pakistan cricket. He studied at the noted Pakistani institutions, Sadiq Public School, Bahawalpur and Aitchison College, Lahore, and holds a Masters Degree in Business Administration.

Rameez was a right-handed opening batsman, and is a former captain of the Pakistani team.

Raja made his first class debut in 1978, at a time when Pakistan has a secure opening pair in the great Majid Khan and Sadiq Muhammad, and for many years there was little question of him making the national side, at a time his brother Wasim Raja was a regular in the side. When his chance came, it would be in a match against England, when Pakistan were fielding a depleted side. His performance was unimpressive, he was dismissed for 1 in both innings. However by that time with the retirement of several players and with many years experience in first class cricket, Raja was able to make a place in the team, although his role in the test side was always suspect. Nevertheless he would be one of a generation of players who would see Pakistan cricket rise to its greatest heights.

Although he would make sporadic appearance until the 1997 season, including most notably as officiating captain when Pakistan removed Salim Malik after the match fixing scandle, as well as another appearance in a World Cup (the 1996 edition), he was never a regular after 1993.

He has been active as a commentator and an administrator since his retirement
