A source in the party said Khan was under huge pressure from the PTI to disclose his third marriage after a humiliating defeat in Punjabs Lodhran district last week.

Khan, who captained the Pakistan team when it won the Cricket World Cup in 1992, Wednesday Bushra Watto in a low-key ceremony in the eastern city of Lahore. "Later, both developed some intimacy and finally Bushra took divorce from her husband and contracted marriage with Imran early last month", the source said.

Khan had denied media reports that he had already contracted marriage with Maneka, a day after a Pakistani daily reported that he married her on January 1 in Lahore.

Jemima Goldsmith, daughter of a British billionaire, was his first wife.
