Imran Khan, the chairman of the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf, had high hopes for the Pakistani national cricket team’s triumph in the Twenty20 World Cup, which is now taking place in Australia.
On Wednesday’s broadcast of Piers Morgan’s “TalkTV,” Imran Khan stated, I’m positive that Pakistan has a team capable of winning the World Cup InshAllah.
Imran Khan, who was ecstatic by the Men in Green’s exciting triumph, compared it to the 1992 World Cup, adding, We beat New Zealand in the semifinal and then played England in the final.
The victory has given the Green Shirts much-needed hope, and they are now looking forward to the final, Khan said with a smile. The entire country is rejoicing in our achievement, he remarked.
