Karachi: Aug 20, 2013

The newly-appointed manager of the Pakistan team, Moin Khan might have spoken aloud about the importance of discipline in the side before leaving for Zimbabwe, but an incident involving three current players has left the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) red-faced.

Three of the members of the national team were caught on camera by Geo News enjoying a dance show in one of the theatres in Lahore.

Pace troika of Junaid Khan, Anwar Ali and Asad Ali were caught off-guard by the camera while they visited one of the theatres in Lahore to watch a dance show hours before the team’s departure for Zimbabwe.

Most of these shows are notorious for being a front for raunchy dances by actresses on stage  one reason why they are so popular among the public.

The channel clearly was in no mood to let go the players and came up with some sarcastic comments on their appearance in the theatre hours before the team was to leave for Zimbabwe last night.

One of the dancer said that the female performers were delighted to see the three Pakistani cricketers among the audience.

“It was exciting to see Junaid in the hall. He is the favorite player for many of us,” one girl said.

The PCB was unavailable for comment.
