They include Shahid Saeed, Aamir Sohail, Aaqib Javed, Ijaz Ahmed, Inzamam-ul-Haq, Javed Miandad, Moin Khan (wk), Mushtaq Ahmed, Rameez Raja, Saleem Malik, Wasim Akram, Wasim Haider, and Zahid Fazal.
Khan, who is set to become the country’s new prime minister, may take oath of the office on 14 August. Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf (PTI) emerged as the single largest party in the 24 July elections, winning 116 National Assembly seats out of the contested 270 parliamentary constituencies.
Khan, 65, had earlier expressed his desire to take the oath of office on August 11.
The PTI had initially planned to invite several foreign personalities including Bollywood superstar Aamir Khan and Indian cricket legends Kapil Dev, Sunil Gavaskar and Navjot Singh Siddhu to the swearing-in ceremony. But decided against it later.
The final of the 1992 ICC Cricket World Cup was played at the Melbourne Cricket Ground, Melbourne on 28 June. The match was won by Pakistan under their captain Imran Khan who defeated England by 22 runs to lift their first ever World Cup trophy.
