Former captain Imran Khan believes Pakistan cricket needs a revolution following a series of setbacks in recent years.

The all-rounder told reporters that corruption in the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and nepotism in selection were the biggest hurdles facing the game.

Imran, who led Pakistan to the 1992 World Cup title, was here Sunday evening to visit an academy set up by Moin Khan, another former Pakistan captain.

"What Pakistan cricket needs is a revolution," said Imran, who is now an active politician and heads the Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaaf (PTI) party. "We will have to root out corruption and nepotism from our cricket."

Imran lamented that Pakistan today lags behind countries like Australia and India.

"Australia made enormous progress because of a solid domestic structure while India has boosted its cricket by introducing the IPL," he said.
