The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), which received harsh criticism for leaving famous all-rounder Imran Khan out of the initial movie, posted a "rectified" version of the ICC World Cup 2023 video on Wednesday.

The PCB made it clear in the film's title that "the movie was abbreviated owing to its length, and certain crucial parts were removed. In the full version of the video, this has been fixed.

In addition to Imran, the revised version of the film featured Pakistan's gold medal wins at the 2010 and 2014 Asian Games, Misbah-ul-Haq guiding Pakistan to its first-ever number-one Test ranking, and Nida Dar being the first Pakistani player to record 100 T20I wickets.

Over the course of his long cricket career, Imran played for Pakistan in 175 one-day internationals and 88 tests.

His averages of 37 with the bat and 22 with the ball maintained him at the top of the group of elite all-rounders who made an impression on everyone in Test cricket in the 1980s, along with Ian Botham, Richard Hadlee, and Kapil Dev.

Imran played in 51 Test matches during the course of his final ten years of international cricket, averaging a staggering 50 with the bat and 19 with the ball.

The biggest highlight of Imran's career occurred when the Men in Green won the 1992 World Cup trophy under his inspired leadership. Imran also guided Pakistan to their maiden series victory in England in 1987.

The former cricketer-turned-politician is presently imprisoned on corruption allegations after being found guilty in the Toshakhana case and given a three-year prison sentence. Subsequently, the ECP prohibited him from standing for office for five years.
