You would think this makes Imran Khan an irresistible biography subject – and you’d be right.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Any reader like me will find a wide range of descriptions of his relationship with Javed Miandad. He never preferred to take short cuts as short cuts were only temporary. An unstated subtext running throughout Sandford’s narrative is that the English would love nothing more than to claim Imran as one of their own.

While reading the pages, you are sensing some footage playing in your clouds of imagination. The transformation and his entry into Politics are not brought convincingly enough, though he remains loyal to his political stand. Indeed, Imran transcended cricket in that many people with little interest in the game found themselves absorbed by his public image and personality.
Yes, he has an obstinate side, but that just makes him a formidable proposition.
Imran Khan has always been christopheer controversial figure, a man who gives rise to hot debate on account of his strong conviction and hard line views. Of the five featured stars on the cover, a superbly hirsute year-old wearing a tight black shirt and gaudy trousers, with a facial expression of supreme self-confidence, stood out.
His cousin whose word,Imran Khan trusted like anything. Man, this guy was quite something.
The prose, engaging and conversational throughout, is at times even riveting. It is a book about Pakistan, its politics, culture, and society.
Therefore when I fell upon this book while browsing through a bookshop, I had to own it and read it, in the due process. I always have been fascinated by the world of Imran Khan.

Off you go… Better luck next time… Give my love to your sister… Shall I say cricket playboy? He also collected the cricketing sources from different cricket administrations, Cricinfo and county clubs.
From his achievements on the cricket field as the Pakistan captain who captured the World Cup and the game’s best all-rounder in history, through to his racy social life—the practicing Muslim boogieing on sanddord dancefloor of Annabel’s; an “astonishing chtistopher according to one overnight partner; praised by Diana Princess of Wales, close friend to his then wife Jemima Goldsmith, as a “devoted husband”—the Imran story is full of color and contradictions.
