In this biography, written with Imran Khan's co-operation, Ivo Tennant charts in detail the former Pakistan Test Match captain's exploits on the field, culminating in his team's triumph in the 1992 World Cup. Imran's enormous cricketing gifts have attracted both hero-worship and controversy, and the book considers his uneasy, sometimes stormy relations with Javed Miandad and other colleagues, his unpopularity with the Press in Pakistan, and the problems he encountered on the English county circuit - he has rarely been at ease with English players, and is outspoken about the way the game is played and run in England. But Imran has always been more than a cricketer, and has been known as a socialite since his undergraduate days at Oxford. The book discusses his friendships with celebrities, his campaign to save the rain forests, his often-misrepresented relationships with a succession of women, the reasons why he has never married, and his ambitions to enter Pakistani politics. The author writes on cricket for "The Times", "The Cricketer" and "Cricket World" and his written biographies of Frank Worrell, the Cowdreys and Graham Gooch.
