Imran Khan saw wishes pouring in on him after his party won the most seats in Pakistan’s election. Wishes came in from teammates as well as rivals as the World Cup winner became the Prime Minister of Pakistan.

The Election Commission said on Friday that Khan’s Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) party enjoyed a strong lead over the outgoing Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz (PML-N) but short of an overall majority.

The 1992 World Cup winning captain will likely need to enter into a coalition to form a government. Wasim Akram, who was a key figure of the Pakistan squad that lifted the World Cup under Khan’s captaincy tweeted in joy as well.

The left-arm pacer had earlier tweeted and showed his support for Imran Khan in the run up to the election. He always believed that Khan’s leadership could make Pakistan a democratic country again.

Another Pakistani pacer who developed and reached his prime under Khan’s guidance, Waqar Younis, also backed the iconic cricketer as Prime Minister and congratulated him on Twitter.

Ramiz Raja, who was also a part of the victorious Pakistan squad of 1992, hailed his skipper for the phenomenal achievement and welcomed him as the new leader of Pakistan.

Khan, who vowed to improve relations with arch-rival India in his first comments following Wednesday’s polls, also received huge support from across the border.

Sanjay Manjrekar, the man whose double hundred against a Khan-led Pakistan is till fresh in our memories, wished good luck to his cricketing hero.

India’s 1983 World Cup winning captain Kapil Dev tipped Imran Khan to do justice as the Prime Minister of Pakistan in a TV interview. He said:

“It looks nice that a cricketer and one who we know is going to be the PM”

Current Pakistan players Mohammad Amir and Mohammad Hafeez also delivered their respective messages on Twitter.
