    [REPORT] Pakistan to come up with new quality-based central contracts

    Pakistan to come up with new quality based central contracts

    KARACHI: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to design its new central contracts keeping in mind next year's World Cup and will lay emphasis on quality rather than quantity.

    Reliable sources in the PCB told PTI on Tuesday that the Board is planning to reduce the number of players in the new central contracts from 35 to 25.

    "Last year 35 players got central contracts in different categories but this year discussions have been held on giving fewer players contracts but raising their monthly salaries and other perks in the contracts," a PCB official said.

    The official said that the PCB was contemplating increasing monthly retainers and also fees for Test matches.

    He said that head coach Mickey Arthur will join chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq and two Board officials, Haroon Rasheed and Mudassar Nazar in finalising the list of players to be given the new contracts.
    "These people will also recommend to the Board how many players should get contracts and how much raise should be given to them," the official added.

    He said the head coach wanted the PCB to give contracts to those players who would be in a pool of players to be finalised for the World Cup pretty soon.

    "The stress this year is on the preparations for the World Cup and players who are likely to serve Pakistan well in the mega event," he said.

    "The increase in the contractual salaries is being contemplated to keep the contracted players away from the mushrooming foreign T20 leagues so that their cricket careers are extended."

    He said the new contracts would be from July 1 for a period of 12 months as the existing contracts expire at end of June.

    Players, who don't get central contracts, will be able to take part in foreign T20 leagues to increase their earnings but will have to seek NOCs from the same committee that includes Arthur, Inzamam and the two PCB officials.

    The PCB recently announced it would allow its contracted players to take part in only two leagues in a year including the PSL.

    Smart move.

    Reduce quantity, increase quality.

    More competition for fewer central contracts is a good thing imo.

    Plus, I don't care for the Hafeezs, Akmals, etc. going to CPL, BPL, BBL and all.
    Preventing the candidates who are likely to represent Pak in WC2019 is a wiser move.

    Contracting 35 players was always a dumb idea. PCB sometimes makes poor decisions and then corrects them a few years later.

    We will never surrender. We win or we die. And don't think it stops there. You will have the next generation to fight; and after the next, the next.

    Shezzy will get A+ contract and become Opener for at least 75 more ODIs and T20s. He will score a 50 against AFG and will continue to start in every game no questions asked.

    KARACHI : Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will finalise the list of centrally contracted players towards the end of this week, before the team’s tour to Zimbabwe.

    Despite the fact that the current set of contracts will expire on June 30, the PCB is yet to reach a decision regarding players who will be under board’s payroll for the next term.

    It is expected that the PCB will arrive at a decision after consultation between Chief Selector Inzamamul Haq, Head Coach Mickey Arthur and other board officials before Pakistan team leaves for Zimbabwe.
    PCB steps up efforts to normalise ties with Emirates Cricket Board

    According to sources, the board is contemplating a new line of approach which could see less centrally contracted players than before but with a higher pay grade.

    Last year, the PCB awarded central contracts to 35 players—which was an increase of seven as compared to 2016.

    The contracts are split into four categories with players in the A-group receiving the highest amount of money.

    Pakistan cricketers will gather in Lahore for a brief training camp— beginning on June 25— in order to prepare for the upcoming tour of Zimbabwe.

    The squad will be named after assessing the rehabilitation process of injured players such as pacer Rumman Raees, right-handed batsman Babar Azam and all-rounder Imad Wasim.

    Meanwhile a plan will also be chalked out for fast bowler Mohammad Amir with regards how to manage his work-rate.

    The selected members of the squad will leave for Zimbabwe on June 28.
