Pakistan Prime Minister Imran Khan on March 31 said that he won't resign from his post ahead of the no-confidence motion and will 'play till last ball', news agency ANI reported quoting Khan's address.

"When I played cricket for 20 years, the world and those who played cricket with me saw that I play till the last ball. I've never accepted defeat in life. Nobody should think that I will sit at home. I'll come back stronger, whatever may the result be," Khan said in his address to the nation.

Adding more, he said that the no-confidence motion will decide the future of Pakistan.
