Imran Khan tops Kohli as the best captain in ICC poll
Prime Minister of Pakistan logged 47.3 per cent votes while Indian captain got 46.2 per cent.
Former Pakistan skipper Imran Khan has beaten Indian captain Virat Kohli in an International Cricket Council (ICC) poll.
The world’s governing body for cricket put out a question in the poll that asked: ‘Who would you rate as the best among these giants?’ with the other options being former South African skipper AB de Villiers and Australian women’s team captain Meg Lanning.
And it was a neck-and-neck race with Khan, currently the Prime Minister of Pakistan, logging 47.3 per cent of the 536,346 votes polled.
