PCB Announces Hiked Contracts

Pakistan women players Bismah Maroof, Javeria Khan, and Diana Baig earned some promotions on their central contracts. 

The Pakistan Cricket Board has released their performance-based women’s central contract list for the upcoming 2020-21 season. The said list has three categories of players, bringing a total of nine players. This contract list will take effect on July 1 as a part of PCB’s efforts to raise the profile of women’s sport. 

As the contracts had been released, team captain Bismah Maroof has been retained on her spot as Pakistan Women’s all-format captain. Aside from that, she also received a contract promotion together with vice-captain Javeria Khan and fast bowler Diana Baig. 

Following the promotion of the three players are the entry of Anam Amin and Omaima Sohail to the contract list. Meanwhile, Nida Dar had been demoted to Category C after her performance on the previous season. 

The nine central contracts of the PCB will see an increment of 33 per cent in the monthly retainers of those who had been classified under Category A. Meanwhile, categories B and C will receive 30 and 25 per cent rise. Aside from that, the board has also decided to hike the players’ match fee and event prize money by 100 per cent while increasing their daily allowances by 50 per cent.  

Aside from the contracts of the women’s team, the PCB is also in charge of the Pakistan national team for men as well as the Pakistan Super League. To learn more about this cricket league, head over to Betwala.
