The newly elected prime minister in Pakistan is not a new name in the country. Imran Khan has led he country to cricket glory and been a longtime politician and philanthropist, and last week won a contentious election to become the country's new prime minister.

Now, as Khan and his Pakistan Tehreek-i-Insaf party attempts to build a coalition, we ask how this man-of-the-people will achieve his many promises, and if the country can finally find some political stability under his stead.

In this episode of Beyond the Headlines, host Naser Al Wasmi talks with Ben Farmer, who covered the election for The National, and ESPN cricinfo's Osman Samiuddin about how Khan's lofty status as a sportsman can equate to the political arena.
