Wasim Akram, a legendary bowler, said that the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) should apologize for leaving Imran Khan out of a movie celebrating Pakistan’s Independence Day on August 14.
Khan led Pakistan to its first and only ODI World Cup victory in 1992, but the PCB left out the captain who led the team to victory, which caused a huge reaction on social media.
“After long trips and hours of waiting to get to Sri Lanka, I got the shock of my life when I watched PCB’s short clip on the past of Pakistan cricket without the great Imran Khan… Even though they have different political views, Imran Khan is a legend in the world of cricket. He made Pakistan a strong team and gave us a way to get there. Akram, who was on the team that won the World Cup in 1992, wrote that PCB should remove the video and say sorry.
Khan retired from cricket and went into politics. He is often thought of as one of the best all-around players in cricket history.
He started the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI). From 2018 to 2022, he was Pakistan’s 22nd Prime Minister. In 2022, he was kicked out of office after a vote of no-confidence was passed. Since he was kicked out of office, he has been hit with about 150 lawsuits, and in May he was arrested on charges of corruption.
He was also given a three-year jail term and told he couldn’t run for public office for five years.
