In a scam which is bound to send ripples in the Pakistan Sports Ministry, the country’s national exchequer was recently asked to reimburse the expenses for a ‘Belgium Cricket team’ visiting Lahore.

According to media reports, the visit was arranged for few people affiliated with PML-N UK, who set up this so called cricket team from abroad and then used it to reach Lahore.
Only two members of the 15-member squad were British. The remaining were from Pakistan itself. But the team went on to participate in Punjab youth festival.
Even the PCB was unaware of the existence of such a team.
The person who accompanied this team is a close associate of Rana Mashud and was appointed as coordinator without any legal or constitutional formalities.
