1. Pakistan's current PM. Imran Khan is way above average

He is a former captain of the Pakistan Cricket Team and he led them to a World Cup victory.
He raised funds to build a cancer hospital in memory of his mother.

Imran finished high school in England and attended Oxford U where he read for a degree in Economics and Politics - he was also captain of the Oxford cricket team.
