Tainted cricketer Salman Butt has slammed Punjab Sports Board’s decision to convert the Lahore City Cricket Association (LCCA) ground into a five-star hotel.

In order to circumvent the hassle of providing security and traffic control for foreign players in Lahore, an initial amount of Rs.30 million has been released for the construction of a five-star hotel, comprising of 1000 rooms, at the LCCA ground.

The LCCA ground, located next to the Gaddafi Stadium in Lahore, will no longer feature matches but will be the venue for a public-private partnership.
