Reason why we should remember Imran Khan
KARACHI: Imran Khan was, perhaps, the finest cricketer Pakistan has produced and few would doubt his cricketing credentials.
Imran Khan was highly talented in nearly all aspects of the game. Although he was more off a bowling all rounder but he would make it into any team in the world just with his batting. His fast bowling, especially, was an inspiration to many at a time when many young fast bowlers were reluctant to bend their back at lifeless pitches in Pakistan but Khan’s example gave them a reason to work hard on their bowling.
Imran Khan improved with every passing year and this can be gauged from the fact that in his last 10 years of international cricket he played 51 Tests, averaging 50 with the bat and 19 with the ball.
Imran Khan rounded off his career by leading Pakistan to its first ever world cup crown in 1992 when Pakistan defeated England in the final of the 50 over World Cup in Australia.
In case you have forgotten what Imran Khan has achieved in cricket during his time, it is imperative that watch his batting and bowling at a glimpse.
