Rashid Latif Slams Pakistan Cricket Team for hosting Private Dinner before T20 World Cup 2024

The Legend Rashid Latif has kept critics on the current Pakistan Cricket Team as they organized a private dinner with the entry of USD 25 right before the T20 World Cup 2024 campaign started.

Pakistan team has invited fans for a meet and greet, but the initiative wasn’t free or for charity, triggering controversy and leaving many fuming. Out of those, a former Pakistan Cricketer took the incident to social media to highlight the program organized by the Pakistan Cricket Board.

With a fan suggested the price should have been higher, Latif indicated that he understands the idea of organizing charity dinners, but with fee was simply disturbing him.

“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,” he added.

Coming to the tournament, Pakistan will play their first match of the T20 World Cup 2024 against the United States on June 06 at Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas.
