I Will Fix The Pakistan Cricket Team – Imran Khan
The World Cup-winning skipper, who is the current Prime Minister of the country Imran Khan has decided himself take the job of fixing the current Pakistan team. He wants to have a close look into the team and wants to bring back the glory of the country after missing out a chance to play the second stage of ICC World Cup 2019.
