The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) confirmed on Thursday that all of the players who are taking part in the ongoing Pakistan Super League (PSL) have received seventy percent of their participating fees after a short delay.
The remaining dues will be paid within a month after the conclusion of the season on March 19, which will take place on March 19.
The local newspaper agency was informed by a representative of the PCB that the reason for the delay in payment was due to the fact that players had arrived at different times, “which led to the late submission of the player list.”
In any case, the representative stated that all payments have been completed at this point.
Players Payment Agreement With PCB
According to the agreements that were reached with the players, they were each given a payment equal to thirty percent of their total fees when they signed their contracts, with the remaining forty percent to be paid when they officially joined their respective teams.
According to a spokeswoman for the PCB, the organization “takes a lot of pleasure” in the fact that it has never been late with player payments for the PSL and has also never defaulted on its obligations.
“In addition to the high level of cricket and the warm hospitality that they are provided with, this is one of the reasons why overseas cricketers like to feature in the PSL.”
In the meantime, the PCB has not yet paid the people working with the six Provincial Cricket Associations, whose services were terminated as a result of the repeal of the PCB Constitution 2019, the amount equal to half of the dues that are owed to them.
But, according to the PCB’s statement, all of the remaining staff will receive their dues before the month’s end.
The PCB Management Committee, which was appointed on December 21 for a period of 120 days to reimplement the PCB constitution of 2014 in place of 2019, had abolished the six Provincial Cricket Associations and has now begun the process of elections for the bodies of the 16 regional Cricket Associations in accordance with the constitution of 2014. The PCB Management Committee was appointed on December 21.
