Imran Khan to ‘motivate’ Pakistan players before India match


LAHORE: Cricketer-turned-politician Imran Khan says he will meet Pakistan team players before the big clash against India and advise them in view of his experience.

Talking to media here, Khan said he was asked by Pakistan T20 captain Shahid Afridi to mentor team for the big match on March 19 in Kolkata.

He said would like players to play confidently and without any fear.

The Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf chief also took exception to chief minister who refused to ensure security to Pakistan team that eventually led to shifting of venue from Dharamsala to Kolkata.

“Hate politics is a sign of a weak politician,” he added.

The ex-captain said problems could be resolved with India through talks. “It is in favor of both countries to hold dialogues for any conflict resolution.”

Khan will leave for India today to watch the much-awaited clash between India and Pakistan in Kolkata tomorrow.
