ISLAMABAD - Chief of Army Staff General Qamar Javed Bajwa, while on a private tour of South Africa, paid a surprise visit to Newlands where Pakistan played the fifth and final one-day international against the hosts.
The army chief surprised the national cricketers when he visited the team’s dressing room.
The players were even more pleasantly taken aback when they found out the general knew quite a lot about cricket and past cricketers.
When he met the team’s assistant manager and former cricketer Mansoor Rana, General Bajwa mentioned Mansoor's late father and famous umpire Shakoor Rana.
The army chief told him that he also knew about his uncle Sultan Rana who was a good cricketer and an exceptionally good fielder.
