Pakistani cricket star rallies thousands

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) ? Pakistani cricket legend-turned politician Imran Khan has rallied around 100,000 supporters in the eastern city of Lahore ahead of a national election.

Khan is shaping up to be the biggest wildcard in the May 11 parliamentary election ? the first transition between democratically elected governments in a country that has experienced three military coups.

Casting himself as an anti-corruption crusader, the 60-year-old is seen as a threat to the two long-dominant parties as evidenced by the huge crowds that turned out Saturday to support him.

Khan polls as the nation's most popular politician by a wide margin. But it's uncertain how effective he will be in converting his personal appeal into votes for his party.
