“You appointed a foreigner on a key position. What will happen when he flees the country after doing corruption? Is there a shortage of people in your own country that you had to bring people from abroad to work in the PCB?”
The current president of Pakistan, Imran Khan represented Pakistan in 88 tests scoring 3807 runs and picked up 362 wickets besides 175 ODIs where he scored 3709 runs and picked up 182 wickets.

It is almost like you’re the only intelligent person in this country as if no one has gone to Oxford or Cambridge or any other university in Pakistan. Think about the people,” said Miandad
