Oh my God, what a great quiz! Well done, fellow quizzer! Though I may point out some corrections:

- Add "Allama Iqbal" as a type-in for Muhammad Iqbal, as he is known by that name by the most people.

- Specify "FORMER captain of cricket team" for Wasim Akram, because I kept trying Sarfaraz Ahmed, Azhar Ali, Babar Azam and Shahid Afridi.

- Musharraf resigned in 2008, not 2001.

- For Amitabh Bhai, I suggest you add the name of a film, because it was hard to get the answer.
