Separate Red and White-Ball Contracts For Players Are Announced By Ramiz Raja
According to PCB chairman Ramiz Raja, the cricket regulatory body has decided to raise match fees across all three game types by 10%.
For the first time in history, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announced separate central contracts for red ball and white ball cricket on Friday. PCB will, however, discourage its top athletes from competing in international leagues. Even though the board is willing to provide them with financial compensation for doing so. The BoG has approved revisions to the men’s central contracts structure, the PCB announced in an official statement. “This is part of its plan to incentivize, reward, and motivate its high-performing elite cricketers, as well as to decrease the salary gap compared to players of other countries.”
Ramiz Raja, the chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Announced that the PCB had decided to raise match fees across all three game types by 10%. The match allowance for players who are not participating has also been increased by 50% to 70%.
“Recognizing the significance of white-ball cricket in the expansion and development of the game, red and white-ball contracts were split. In the upcoming 16 months, there are four international competitions, including two World Cups. We will eventually be able to construct two distinct squads that can play both red-ball and white-ball cricket simultaneously thanks to this realization of the value of granting contracts to white-ball specialists. This would also enable us to expose a wider variety of talent to the world “Ramiz Raja stated.
“We have also set aside a sizable amount of money in an effort to deter our premier players from participating in extra off-season activities. In addition to managing their workload and ensuring that they are completely healthy, fresh, and prepared when called to active duty for the country. This money will be utilized to make up for any potential earnings losses “Added he.
In addition, the PCB would compensate players who turned down invitations to play in such competitions.
Red and white ball contracts will be handed separately starting on July 1 with advance retainers. There are now more players who are centrally contracted.
“The Pakistani men’s cricket team has had a remarkable 75% success record overall since September 2021. Which is the highest success rate among all Test-playing nations. Pakistan’s rankings have improved as a result; it is currently ranked fifth in Tests (up one), third in ODIs (up three and the highest since January 2017), and third in T20 Internationals (up one) “said Ramiz.
“In the upcoming 16 months, there are four international competitions, including two World Cups. We will eventually be able to construct two distinct squads that can play both red-ball and white-ball cricket simultaneously thanks to this realization of the value of granting contracts to white-ball specialists. This will also enable us to display a wider variety of talent to the world “Added he.
