Prime Minister Imran Khan has said that he doesn’t have time to watch cricket because of the issues he is facing as the country’s chief executive.
“I must confess I [have] hardly seen cricket. Because the sort of issues I face I really haven’t watched cricket,” the premier was seen saying in an interview clip shared by CNBC anchorperson Hadley Gamble.
“He is clearly a great cricketer,” PM Khan said, when asked if he considered English all-rounder Ben Stokes a great cricketer.

Stokes had won the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for the ICC player of the year a few days ago for playing starring roles in England’s maiden 50-over World Cup victory and one-wicket win in the Leeds Test during the Ashes in 2019.
