Imran Ahmad Khan Niazi (Urdu: عمران احمد خان نیازی‎) (born 5 October 1952)[7] is the 22nd and current Prime Minister of Pakistan and former cricketer. Khan played international cricket for two decades in the late 20th century.[8]

Khan became a politician in the mid-1990s. Currently, besides running his own political party, Khan is also a charity worker and cricket commentator. He made his political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) in 1996. He made a cancer hospital, Shaukat Khanum, in memory of his mother who also died of cancer.

On July 26, 2018, Khan was elected Prime Minister despite many people accusing Khan's campaign of rigging the election.[9] Khan took oath as Prime Minister of Pakistan on 18 August 2018.[10]
