PCB To Review Remuneration Packages Of Centrally Contracted Players After 2024 T20 World Cup

Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to review the remuneration packages of centrally contracted players after the 2024 T20 World Cup exit following the USA vs Ireland match that was called off due to rain.

PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi, along with senior officials, held a meeting on Friday to discuss potential changes to the contracts, aiming to address concerns and improve future performances.

This review comes in the wake of Pakistan’s third elimination in the preliminary round in the tournament’s history, prompting the board to reassess its overall player incentives.

The current central contracts, which were signed on July 1, 2023, under former PCB Chairman Zaka Ashraf, included provisions for increased remunerations over three years.

However, with the recent disappointment in the mega-event, the PCB is considering whether these financial packages remain justified for certain players who have underperformed.

PCB faces a crucial decision regarding the retention of the existing remuneration packages of players, balancing the need to motivate players with the necessity of performance-based rewards.

The review will likely focus on aligning player incentives with their contributions to the team and the team’s success in international competitions.

As the PCB deliberates over potential changes, which could significantly impact the players’ futures and the overall direction of Pakistan cricket.

Babar Azam’s men failed to qualify last night for the Super 8s following the abandonment of the encounter between the USA and Ireland in Florida due to rain. The Men Green lost to the USA in the Super Over and suffered a defeat by 6 runs against arch-rivals India in New York.

They have only registered 2 points in their Group A campaign so far with a single victory against Canada where they chased down a target of 107 runs in 17.4 overs at a slow pace.
