Imran Khan of PTI
Imran is from the Niazi Pashtun Shermankhel tribe of Mianwali, Pakistan. His family is settled in Lahore Punjab, however, he still considers his background Pathan as per his autobiography (Warrior Race: A Journey Through the Land of the Tribal Pathans). Imran attended Aitchison College and the Cathedral School in Lahore until he finished middle school, then entered the Royal Grammar School, Worcester, before completing his formal schooling with an undergraduate degree in Economics from Keble College, Oxford. While at University, Imran was also the captain of the Oxford University cricket team in 1974. He and his mother, Shaukat Khanum, come from a cricketing family--the Burki's, with two of his cousins, Javed Burki and Majid Khan, also having played Test cricket for Pakistan.
This famous Pashtun is not only known for his performances on the field, but off the field as well. Labelled by some as an international playboy, Khan was once voted as the "Sexiest Man of The Year" by Australia Magazine Oz.
