Former Indian skipper Sourav Ganguly congratulated 1992 World Cup-winning Pakistan skipper Imran Khan on winning the general elections. After bagging the majority of votes, Imran Khan is set to become the next Prime Minister of Pakistan.

Consequently, after leading Pakistan to great heights in cricket, Imran will like to do a similar job in leading the whole nation. In fact, the veteran all-rounder is working hard from the last 20 years to try to make a difference.

Imran Khan was the best leader of the cricket world:

Imran-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf won 115 out of the 272 seats in the National Assembly. However, the former Pakistan skipper failed to reach the majority.

Speaking at Cricket Association of Bengal’s annual awards ceremony,

Ganguly said, “Congratulations to him. He has been fighting for a long time and now he is set to become the prime minister of Pakistan.”

Imran, who is well known for his leadership skills will be the 19th Prime Minister of Pakistan. Imran has also opened a Cancer hospital; Shaukat Khanum Memorial Cancer Hospital & Research Centre.

Meanwhile, Sourav Ganguly also gave his choice for the Indian openers in the upcoming first Test against England.

The Prince of Kolkata wants KL Rahul and Murali Vijay to be the opening pair for the visitors.

“I would go with Murali Vijay and KL Rahul as openers in the Test series. Shikhar Dhawan is a good ODI player, and he was in decent touch during the ODI series as well. However, when he opens in Test cricket in overseas conditions, he doesn’t have a good record, be it South Africa, England or Australia,” Ganguly said while talking to IndiaTV.

Moreover, Ganguly also talked about the role of Virat Kohli. Kohli didn’t score a lot of runs on the previous tour of England. Therefore, the Indian skipper will like to get himself on the board.

“Virat Kohli is not only the runs he scores. That’ll remain, he will keep scoring runs till the time he plays because he’s a very good player. But for me, Virat Kohli’s stint as Indian captain is how he takes Indian cricket with him,” he concluded.
