However, he believes cricket will not be among Imran Khan’s major agendas to work on as he will have bigger issues to resolve as the head of the state.
“Cricket will probably not be on his mind. He would have bigger issues to deal with,” Mohammad Mushtaq told the Times of India.
The batting maestro hoped than Khan will lead the country towards success in a similar way as he steered the national side to glory under his captaincy.
“I just hope he leads the country the way he led the Pakistan team,” he added. “The politicians over the years haven’t done much for my country. I hope Imran will help bring down the poverty.”
