Hafeez refused to sign the PCB contract
The PCB wants to sign only 19 players who can serve the Pakistan cricket team in three formats. The PCB has offered to pay the rest on the condition of paying only match-fee and daily allowance. Mohammad Hafeez refused to sign the new contract given by the Pakistan Cricket Board PCB.
It is learned that the 39-year-old batsman has been informed by the board that Hafeez will be given a retainer contract after leaving his monthly contract of Rs 1 lakh so that he will not get a salary but a match fee and daily allowance.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) last month signed a new central contract with the cricketers for the next year. So that only 19 cricketers got a place. It did not include players like experienced Pakistani batsman Muhammad Hafeez-Shoaib Malik. Earlier, there were 33 contracted cricketers. The number has been cut from there to only 19 people.
The PCB has decided that no player or official can participate in any other event without signing an agreement. Last year, some cricketers took part in other events without signing contracts. There will be separate contracts for cricketers and match officials in different departments. The PCB further said that after signing the contract, they must take the NOC (No Objection Certificate) of the board before signing any other franchise contract.
