How much will Babar, Shaheen, Rizwan make under new contracts?

Sources said that Babar Azam, Shaheen Afridi, and Mohammad Rizwan are likely to get a big pay rise, as the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is thinking about making big changes to the Central Contracts of the national team players.

Sources say that the cricketing body has decided not only to cut the number of players in the central contract, which had 33 last year, to 25 or 26, but also to get rid of the red and white ball category in the contracts.

Also, the players’ match fees are expected to go up by about 50% in their new contracts, which would be a record.

The new contracts will be given to the players in four different groups, called A, B, C, and D.

Senior players Babar, Rizwan, and Shaheen are said to be in category A and get Rs4.5 million a month as retainers, which is almost four times as much as they got last year.

Category B players will earn around Rs3 million, while Category C and D players will earn between Rs0.75 million and Rs1.5 million.

Note that the contracts were supposed to end on June 30, but they were extended for a month because it wasn’t clear who would be chairman of the PCB.

After the new selection committee is named and Zaka Ashraf, who is in charge of the PCB management committee, gives his approval, the PCB will give the players their central contracts.

Misbah-ul-Haq, a former Test cricketer, was put in charge of the important Cricket Technical Committee by the PCB.

Former Test cricketers Inzamam-ul-Haq and Mohammad Hafeez are on the committee. It is likely that Inzamam-ul-Haq will become the head of the new selection committee.

The cricket trio will make suggestions about things like the domestic structure as a whole, the schedule, the playing conditions, the national selection committees, the national team coaches, central and domestic contracts, and plans for the development of umpires, referees, and curators.

They will also be able to invite more cricket experts and will have to give regular reports to the head of the PCB Management Committee.
