Prime Minister Imran Khan’s cricketing mate Ramiz Raja has given his take on how his cricket captain would have countered the ongoing Azadi March, being led by Jamiat Ulema-e-Islam-Fazl (JUI-F) Maulana Fazl-ur Rehman.
Raja visualizing the political situation of Pakistan in cricketing terms, he said his World Cup winning skipper would have gone with an all out aggressive strategy ‘knocking’ Rehman with his in-swinging Yorkers.
“Visualising, in cricketing terms, Imran Khan’s line of attack against Fazlur Rehman: three bouncers at 90 mph, preferably all body blows, and then knocking him over with a vicious in swinging Yorker!” tweeted Raja.

The ongoing Azadi March, led by the opposition, has become a headache for Imran Khan’s government, with both sides failing to reach an agreement despite rounds of talks.
Rehman remains adamant in his stance of demanding the prime minister’s resignation and fresh elections without any role of the army.
