Karachi: Pakistan’s world-cup winning team captain and current Prime Minister Imran Khan has been voted as the best captain in International Cricket Council’s (ICC) poll.
Cricket’s governing body posted a poll on Twitter and asked the cricket fans to decide which of these ‘pacesetters’ were the best among these geniuses.
Indian captain Virat Kohli, former South African captain AB de Villiers and Australia women’s cricket team captain Meg Lanning were Imran’s competitors.
The poll was to pick the best out of these four after their averages improved drastically while leading their respective sides.
Who would you rate as the best among these giants?
