Sidhu welcomed the ‘change’ in Pakistan brought about by appearance of Imran Khan-led Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf government while talking to reporters in Lahore.

He further added:

“I have come to Pakistan on my friend’s [Imran] invitation. These are very special moments”.

I have arrived in Pakistan as a friend instead of a political figure

 “I have come here bearing the message of love, and prayers for Pakistanis,” he added.

“Hindustan jeevey, Pakistan jeevey!” he chanted.

The former cricketer said athletes and artists remove distances between countries.

Imran,  who founded PTI in 1996, is expected to be declared as PM on Saturday after his party remained successful in the general elections.

Earlier this week, former Indian captain Kapil Dev declared that he will not be attending the oath-taking ceremony, citing ‘personal reasons’. Gavaskar also declined Imran’s invite due to his commentary commitments for the ongoing Test series between England and India.

The recently elected members of the National Assembly will vote for the country’s next prime minister today. Imran Khan is contesting against Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz president Shahbaz Sharif, but PTI candidate is more likely to win this race already due to a fallout among opposition parties.
