Imran Khan was the only son out of the five children of Ikramullah Khan Niazi and Shaukat Khanum. He received his primary education in Lahore, then moved to Britain for higher education, where he graduated from Oxford University.

He returned back to Pakistan in 1971 and joined Pakistan's national cricket team. He served as the captain of the team from 1982 and 1992 and the South Asia country bagged the country’s only world cup in 1992.

Ending his career, he entered the world of philanthropy and laid the foundation of Shaukat Khanum Hospital in the name of his mother who died battling the deadly disease.
