Islamabad: India’s envoy to Pakistan Ajay Bisaria gifted a cricket bat to Prime Minister-in-waiting Imran Khan after the two met on Friday to discuss the prospects of relationship between the two neighbouring countries.

The Indian High Commissioner, along with other diplomatic staff, congratulated the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI) chief on his electoral success in the July 26 polls in which the Khan-led party emerged victorious with 116 seats in the National Assembly.

The cricket bat gifted by Bisaria was autographed by the entire Indian cricket team, the Indian mission in Islamabad said. Imran will take oath as Prime Minister on Aug.18, Senator Faisal Javed, Additional Information Secretary of PTI, said on Friday.

Javed also confirmed that three former Indian cricketers Kapil Dev, Novjot Singh Sidhu and Sunil Gavaskar had been invited to the oath-taking ceremony. Javed said the members of Imran Khan’s 1992 World Cup winning team have also been invited to attend the ceremony.

President Mamnoon Hussain has summoned a session of the National Assembly for Aug.13.
