Imran Khan, the former Pakistan captain, enjoys the stature of a legend not only in Pakistan but across the globe. Time and again, cricketers have shared stories exhibiting the greatness of the Lahore born.
The latest man to jump on the bandwagon is Inzamam-ul-Haq who happens to be a former cricketer and current chief selector of Pakistan. The Multan born cricketer is of the view that the leadership skills of Imran Khan allowed Inzamam’s talent to nurture in a way that it served Pakistan for many years.
Showering heaps of praise on the current Prime Minister of Pakistan, the 49-year old discussed the 1992 World Cup tournament where Inzamam struggled a lot before coming back with a bang and ensuring a semi-final victory against favorites New Zealand.
Inzamam said that the 66-year old repeatedly told him about him being Pakistan’s key player. Extending his argument, he added that it was Imran’s backing which aided Inzamam to hold onto his self-confidence and that is how he was able to gather so much success in the International cricket.
