ISLAMABAD: Members of the Pakistan cricket team selected for the upcoming  World Cup 2019 met with  Prime Minister Imran Khan here at the Prime Minister House on Friday.

The team was accompanied by  chairman Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Ehsan Mani, Coach Mickey Arthur and Chief Selector Inzamam-ul-Haq.

Officials of the PCB Management also took part in the meeting with  Prime minister Imran Khan.

According to sources, PM Imran advised the cricket team regarding preparations for the upcoming World Cup, while expressing faith in them.

 

The prime minister shook hand with all members of the team and encouraged them to boost their morale.

He directed to play with good team spirit, hardwork and enthusiasm in the mega cricket event.

Imran Khan, who had led the green-shirts to their first World Cup victory in 1992,   advised skipper Sarfraz Ahmed to lead the team from the front as his performance matters a lot in big matches.

He gave an hour-long lecture to the players, sharing  with them his World Cup 1992 experiences.

"Conditions are difficult in England but the players should not lose hope," the PM said adding that "Pakistan were a weak team in 1992 but we won the World Cup with passion".

“You are ambassadors of the nation and the people have great expectations from you and you will make proud the country from your abilities, sportsman spirit and behavior,” he said.
