Central Contracts Face More Delays But Cricketers to Get Big Bump in Salaries

The issuance of central contracts for cricket players has been postponed once again due to the Muharram holidays, according to sources.

The Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) committee meeting with the relevant departments regarding central contracts has been completed. Next week, the PCB will give the final shape to matters concerning the contracts.

The chairman of the Cricket Committee will brief the Management Committee of the PCB on the central contracts issue.

After his approval, the players will be awarded new contracts, the sources added. There will be no further extension in the central contracts and it should be noted that in June, the PCB extended the duration of central contracts by one month upon their expiry.

According to media reports, national cricketers will get a 25-35% increase in their monthly salaries as well as match fees.
