Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan hosted a group of cricketing legends at his residence in Islamabad on Wednesday. Sir Vivian Richards, Greg Chappell and Shane Watson, all of whom are in Pakistan for the Pakistan Super League (PSL), visited the Prime Minister’s house.
Watson tweeted a video of Khan, Richards and Chappell – three of the greatest cricketers of the 1980s – having a conversation.

“What an inspiring life he has lived on and off the cricket field!!! So amazing to hear Sir Viv, Greg Chappell and Imran relive the good old days!” tweeted Watson.
Watson and Richards are both part of the defending champions Quetta Gladiators in the PSL this season.
“When Imran Khan was the captain, the matches between Pakistan and West Indies were always exciting,” Richards was quoted as saying by Geo News.
“It is pleasing to see the revival of the sport in the country,” he added.
Speaking about the occasion, Khan said, “Foreign cricketers’ services for the revival of international cricket in Pakistan will always be remembered.”
