On Monday Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) head Zaka Ashraf hinted that Pakistani Cricketers will be allowed to play only one franchise apart from Pakistan Super League (PSL).
In Bahawalpur PCB head Zaka Ashraf told media that Pakistani cricketers prefer to play frenchise cricket around the world as they are underpaid.
Zaka Ashraf stated that unfortunately our players get less pay so they prefer to play franchise cricket. He further added that PCB will raise players pays that they delightfully sign central contracts.
Earlier, PCB announced that players will sign a three-year contract with a bigger and better monthly pay in all four categories.
As many as thirty players will be offered a momentous deal that will include a portion of ICC revenue. Unlike last year, red-ball and white-ball national contracts have been merged.
The list of players will be divided into four catagories with a significant increase in monthly retainers. Revenue from ICC will be incorporated in overall monthly remuneration.
Category A will include 3 players with 202% increase, 7 players will be in Category B with 144% increase, Category C has 4 players with 135% increase and 16 players will be in D Category with an increase of 125%.
Match fee of players will also see a major raise. 50% increase in Test matches, 25% in ODIs and 12.5% increase in T20 match fee.
