Ex Pak Cricketer Slams Pakistan Team For Hosting Private Dinner For USD 25

The Pakistani cricket team will be starting their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign from tomorrow with their first match being played against the co-hosts, USA but they have already created controversy with their off-the-field activities.

Before the start of the tournament, the Pakistani cricket team hosted a private dinner party titled as “Meet & Greet” and the fees for attending this private dinner was USD 25. Many former Pakistani cricketers were not happy with the team hosting a private party as Rashid Latif said in a video, “There are official dinners, but this is a private dinner. Who can do this? It’s terrible. That means you met our players in 25 dollars. God forbid, had there been a mess, people would have said boys are earning money.”

He further said, “People tell me that whoever calls the Pakistan players, they just ask, ‘how much money will you give?’ This has become common. Things were different at our time, we had 2-3 dinners but they were official. But this is highlighted because it’s the World Cup. So the players should be careful. The amount of 25 dollars shouldn’t be blatantly used like this. You attend 2-3 dinners, but without the commercial angle. You can go for charity dinners and fundraisers, but this is neither fundraising nor a charity dinner. This is a private function with the name of Pakistan and Pakistan cricket associated with it. Don’t make this mistake.”

Controversies and Pakistan cricket go hand in hand, don’t they?
