PCB under fire for removing Imran from its history video

Netizens criticize board for dropping the cricketing legend who won the 1992 World Cup for Pakistan.

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has come under fire after it minused cricketing legend Imran Khan from its video on the sport’s history.

Khan, now 70, is a former cricket star who became a national hero by leading Pakistan to a Cricket World Cup victory in 1992. He later forged a political career, serving as the prime minister of Pakistan from 2018 to 2022.

The cricketer-turned-politician is currently behind bars on corruption charges after a court convicted him in the Toshakhana case, sentencing him to three years in prison and later, the election commission disqualified him for five years from running for office.

Imran Khan, the man who captained us to World Cup glory in 1992 (lest PCB has forgotten), is glaringly missing from the entire video. His photo of lifting the World Cup trophy — the only one we have in one-day cricket — did make it to the cover image along with other captains but the rest of the 2-minute, 20-second video would have you believe he had no contribution to the sport.

When asked about Imran’s erasure, the PCB said it had “no comment”.
