Imran Khan promises to make Pakistan the best cricket team in the world

Imran Khan promises to make Pakistan the best cricket team in the world

New York, July 22: Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has promised Pakistani-Americans that he is working on a plan to develop the "best cricket team of the world" following the debacle of the country in the recently-concluded ICC World Cup 2019.

The cricketer-turned-politician said this while addressing a gathering of Pakistani-Americans at Capital One Arena in downtown Washington DC.

Referring to the debacle of the Pakistan team in the recently-concluded World Cup tournament, Khan said he has "started working on developing the best cricket team of the world in the next tournament, by bringing the best players in the team."

"Remember my words," the Prime Minister, who led Pakistan to victory at the 1992 Cricket World Cup, said Khan, however, did not divulge details about his plans.

He is currently on a three-day visit of the US and is scheduled to meet President Donald Trump at the White House on Monday.

Khan had given some pep talk to the country's cricket team to banish the fear of losing to India in the crucial ICC Cricket World Cup match on June 16, saying the fear of losing leads to a negative and defensive strategy.

Pakistan, which lost the match against India, could not make it to the semifinal round of the World Cup and remained on the fifth spot. The tournament was won by England for the first time.

Former chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board Najam Sethi has blamed the present management of the board for the national team's poor show in the World Cup.
