Pakistan was represented at the 2006 Commonwealth Games in Melbourne by a 75-member strong contingent comprising 53 sportsmen and women, 21 officials and 1 head of the contingent.

The Pakistan team's dismal performance in the 2006 Commonwealth Games (only 5 medals, including 1 gold) drew public criticism, in view of the large contingent sent to the Games. The official-to-sportsperson ratio was among the highest of any participating team, and newspaper editorials in Pakistan have asked for accountability in expenditure of public funds.[1]
