Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan has vowed to “fix” the national team so that they will be more “professional” and have a better chance of winning the 2023 World Cup.
Imran’s comments come after the men in green failed to qualify for the semi-finals at the recently concluded World Cup.
Despite beating England, South Africa, New Zealand, Afghanistan and Bangladesh, Pakistan still failed to advance to the last four as New Zealand had a better net run rate than them.
PM Imran Khan "After the World Cup I've decided that I'll fix the Pakistan cricket team.The team you'll see in the next World Cup, remember my words that team will be a professional team. We will fix the system & bring one in which the best talent comes forward" #PMIKJalsaInUSA

“After the World Cup I’ve decided that I’ll fix the Pakistan cricket team. The team you’ll see in the next World Cup, remember my words that team will be a professional team. We will fix the system and bring one in [where] the best talent comes forward,” Imran, who led Pakistan to World Cup glory in 1992, was quoted as saying by Saj Sadiq on Twitter.
