Inzamam-ul-Haq is perceived as a good captain by a majority of Pakistanis


A majority of the Pakistani population thinks Inzamam-ul-Haq makes a good captain while most rate Younis Khan to be an average one. These findings have emerged from the latest survey on Sports, conducted by Gallup Pakistan.

Two separate questions inquired how the respondents evaluate Inzamam-ul-Haq and Younis Khan as the Pakistani Cricket team’s Captain. Almost two-thirds of those interviewed (61%) rated Inzamam to be a good captain as opposed to only 13% who think Younis Khan is good at captaincy. Another 31% thinks that Inzamam is an average captain, while a negligible number (6%) say he is a bad one and 2% do not know or have no opinion. In the opinion of a majority of the respondents (54%), Younis Khan proves to be an average captain, whereas almost one-third (30%) thinks he is bad and 3% either have no opinion or did not know.

The survey was conducted by Gallup Pakistan, affiliated with Gallup International, and was based on a sample of over 1200 respondents in the urban and rural areas of all four provinces across Pakistan. This sample was statistically selected to cover all age groups, income and educational levels. The error margin in this kind of survey is estimated to be +5% at a 95% confidence level.
