He recently made a huge statement while addressing a crowd where he claimed that he has traveled around the world and feels that Pakistan has the most talent in cricket.

Imran feels this is the reason why Pakistan cricket is not doing well. Also Read - Govt Permits Pakistan PM Imran Khan to Use Indian Airspace For His Maiden Visit To Sri Lanka
