Working on Developing World’s ‘Best Cricket Team’ – Imran Khan

Written by Vipin Darwade

Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has promised Pakistani-Americans that he is working on a plan to develop the “best cricket team of the world” following the debacle of the country in the recently-concluded ICC World Cup in the UK.

The cricketer-turned-politician said this while addressing a gathering of Pakistani-Americans at Capital One Arena in downtown Washington DC on Sunday.

“I have started working on developing the best cricket team of the world in the next tournament, by bringing the best players in the team”.

“Remember my words,” the prime minister, who led Pakistan to victory at the 1992 Cricket World Cup, said.

Khan, however, did not divulge details about his plans.

Pakistan, which lost the match against India, could not make it to the semi-final round of the World Cup and remained on the fifth spot. The tournament was won by England for the first time.
