Karachi : Pakistan’s legendary cricketer- turned-politician, Imran Khan faced criticism after calling for an overhaul in the cricket structure in a series of tweets at a time when some 45 people have been killed due to heavy rains in the Khyber Pakhtunkhawa province.

Many people took to twitter, pointing out that Imran should be more concerned about the loss of lives and devastation in the KP province rather than worrying about cricket matters.

Imran, whose party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf rules the KPK province, in one of his tweets blamed Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif for what he called the “mess in PCB”.

People, upset with Imran said they wondered how he could think or tweet about cricket at a time he should be overseeing the rescue operations in the KPK province. Imran, who won the 1992 World Cup as captain endorsed calls for overhauling the Pakistan cricket structure and board after the national team was embarrassed by Bangladesh in the recent one-day series and a lone T20 match. —PTI
