10 amazing facts about Imran Khan

Imran Khan, the renowned cricket player from Pakistan, was born on November 25, 1952. Since retiring, Imran—who has so far proven to be Pakistan's best captain—has been heavily involved in politics. Along with a group of youthful players including Wasim Akram, Waqar Younis, Aamir Sohail, and Aaqib Javed, he guided Pakistan to the World Cup victory in 1992.

1: Few people are aware of Imran Khan's full name. Although Ahmad Khan Niazi Imran is his full name, he has never played cricket using it.

2: Khan made his Lahore first-class debut against Sarghodha in 1968 at the age of sixteen, marking the beginning of his professional cricket career.

3: He was chosen for the Pakistani national team in less than two years. He joined the team before he had completed his studies.

4: Khan rose to prominence in the English school cricket scene while he was a student there. In 1974, he led the Oxford University XI team, an uncommon accomplishment for an outsider in England. In addition, he represented Sussex and Worcestershire in county cricket.

5: In 1982, he was appointed captain of Pakistan. During his 48 Test matches as captain, 14 ended in victory for Pakistan, 8 in defeat, and the remaining 24 in a draw. In 139 ODIs, he has also led the side in 77 wins, 57 losses, and one tie. In 1990, Indian Cricket chose him for the Best Cricketer of the Year award.

6: Imran, the most successful captain of Pakistan, is frequently contrasted with Kapil Dev, the captain of India. Fans and analysts viewed both all-rounders as competitors. In Test cricket, Imran's stats are as follows: 3,807 runs, 362 wickets, and 3,709 runs in One-Day Internationals. Kapil, on the other hand, has 3,783 runs and 253 wickets in ODIs and 5,248 runs and 434 wickets in Tests.

7: Imran has shown himself to be a capable leader in both politics and cricket. He established the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) political party in 1996. According to an International Republican Institute (IRI) survey, his party has emerged as Pakistan's most liked political entity after several challenges posed by the opposition.

8: Khan was placed under house imprisonment after he demonstrated against the 2007 Pakistani presidential election. After making his getaway, he spent 11 days hiding. But this did nothing but increase the public's sympathy and support for him.

9. He was appointed his party's legislative leader in 2013. Khan established the provincial administration in Pakistan's militant-ridden Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. For fiscal year 2013–14, the administration unveiled a balanced, tax-free budget.

10. In 2012, Imran Khan was chosen as Asia's Person of the Year. With 88% of the vote, he won that contest.
