Former cricketer Imran Khan declares victory in Pakistan's elections

Pakistan’s cricket star turned politician Imran Khan declared victory Thursday for his party in the country’s general elections, promising a “new” Pakistan following a vote that was marred by allegations of fraud and militant violence.

Khan, who aspires to be the country’s next prime minister, said in a televised address to the nation that “thanks to God, we won and we were successful.”

“If God wills, we will set an example,” he added.

Khan leads Red Force to crushing victory over Volcanoes

Leg-spinner Imran Khan’s five-wicket haul led Trinidad and Tobago Red Force to a 172-run crushing of Windward Islands Volcanoes yesterday, as they hauled themselves off the bottom of the Regional four-day standings.

Set an improbable 375 for victory at the National Stadium, Volcanoes folded for 202 in their second innings with the 32-year-old Khan picking up five for 67 —his 16th five-wicket haul in first class cricket.
