LONDON: Cricket legend Imran Khan has become the fourth Pakistani to be inducted formally into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame at Lord’s.
The former captain received his commemorative cap from ICC Chief Executive Haroon Lorgat, who was accompanied by PCB Chairman and ICC Director Ijaz Butt, Cricket Australia Chairman and ICC Director Jack Clarke and the MCC President John Barclay. Imran joins batsmen Hanif Muhammad and Javed Miandad as Pakistan’s representatives in the initial intake of 55 players into the Hall of Fame, a joint venture between the ICC and the Federation of International Cricketers’ Associations.
Wasim Akram, who was voted in at the end of 2009, joined the trio last year. After the presentation, Imran said it was a great honour for him to be inducted into the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame and to be recognised for his cricketing achievements for Pakistan.
