- Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) reviews domestic match fees policy for centrally contracted players.
- Instead of 50% of their central contract, players will be given only domestic match fees from now onwards.
- PCB says it has eliminated discrimination in compensation at all levels with new policy.
LAHORE: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has reviewed the home match policy for players with mid-board contracts, depending on whether they will be entitled to the same amount of money, to play home cricket, like other cricket players.
A few years ago, the PCB decided that if a cricketer with a middle contract played home cricket, he would be given 50% of the game money, according to their middle contract, for playing a home cricket game.
PCB took this decision to attract cricket players who had contracts in the middle of the board to play home games.
The PCB, however, abruptly changed the policy, according to reports, and ruled that players who enjoyed medium-term contracts would be paid the same amount of home game as anyone else.
When contacted, the PCB said it had eliminated discrimination on benefits and wages at all levels with a new policy.
The PCB said the seniority slab system for determining game finances was no longer valid, adding that if compensation for playing international games should be applied the same approach when it comes to home games.
