Having witnessed musical chairs of democracy and dictatorship for the past 65 years, people of Pakistan now seem to have decided to take the nation’s destiny in their hands. Election fever has gripped the country, and players are no exception.

Players are preparing to leave for their hometowns to cast their votes after the national training camp held in Abbottabad ended on Wednesday. Saeed Ajmal, Junaid Khan, Mohammad Irfan, Asad Shafique and young pace bowler Asad Ali confirmed to Cricnama that they would use their voting right and go to

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has prematurely concluded the national training camp in view of the general election so that players could reach their hometowns on time.

The present world’s best spinner Saeed Ajmal would cast their vote in Faisalabad and Junaid Khan in Swabi. The tallest bowler of the history Mohammad Irfan is facing a technical problem, but he hopes that the issue would be resolved by tomorrow and he would use his voting right in his ancestral town Gaggu Mandi.

Karachi-based young batsman Azhar Ali is going to cast his vote in Federal B Area. His brother is associated with a famous political party of Karachi, so Shafique’s vote would go in the party’s favour.

Players face a different situation than other famous personalities. To them, making their political affiliations known is tantamount to their death. There was a flurry of activity everywhere when Shahid Afridi recently met Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz chief Nawaz Sharif. The all-rounder had to come forward to deny the rumours that he was going to join the PML-N.

The most prominent figure to enter politics after leaving the cricket world is undoubtedly none other than Imran Khan, whose party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf is hoping to win the elections. The four constituencies from which Imran is going to contest the general election includes the one in which Pakistan’s present captain Misbah-ul-Haq resides. Do you think Misbah’s vote would go to Imran Khan?
