Pakistan Cricket Board has decided to offer separate central contracts in its new set of policies. The Pakistan Cricket Board will adopt a new policy for its centrally contracted players from July 1 with the new contracts being given out for two different formats instead of the existing one contract mechanism.
Also, it is understood that the players will get two contracts if they play all formats. The final decision on the matter will be taken in the PCB’s meeting on June 23. There are other issues such as increasing the salaries of PCB employees in view of the inflation rates in the Asian country. Also, the cricket board is looking to get the budget approvals for the financial year, July 2022 to June 2023.
Meanwhile, a source has said that the contracts will be offered from July this year to June next year. The final decision will be taken in the Board of Governors meeting on Thursday (June 23)
“The central contracts will be awarded to players from July 2022 to June 2023. This will be decided in the Board of Governors (BoG) meeting to be held on Thursday,” an official was quoted as saying by Dailytimes.com.pk.
The source also revealed that the salaries of the employees will be increased. Also, the board has released an advertisement for the post of Pakistan Super League (PSL) director. It states that the Pakistan national can only apply for the post.
“Many other issues will also be discussed in the meeting including the increase in salaries of PCB employees.”
“Foreigners can’t apply for the post. The advertisement can also be seen on the board’s website,” he said.
Currently, the tournament has a COO whose name is Salman Naseer. He is likely to be appointed as the director of Pakistan’s cash-rich league as he is a graduate. For the unversed, the candidate applying for the post must be a graduate only.
