Kamran Khan began to play cricket when he was 4 years old. Since then, cricket has become such an essential part of his life that he could not imagine himself apart from cricket.

He was awarded Pakistan's highest university sports award -- University Blue. Khan has a Master's in International Relations from Villanova University and first learned of Haverford cricket while visiting the College duck pond. He was soon urged to become the team's coach.
Besides his devotion to cricket, Kamran Khan has successfully developed and managed several personal businesses. He has been on the board of directors of the Bryn Mawr Business Association for many years and loves to coach the game he loves.
