PCB to take strict actions after a disastrous campaign at the T20 WC 2024

PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi adressing Pakistani Players

The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is poised to take stringent measures following Pakistan’s early exit from the T20 World Cup. Pakistan cricketers face the risk of having their central contracts reviewed, and their salaries potentially reduced by the PCB following their early exit from the T20 World Cup.

PCB to reaccess central contacts

A reliable source on the board said that some officials and former players had advised PCB. Chairman Mohsin Naqvi to reassess the central contracts given to the players during his predecessor, Zaka Ashraf’s tenure.

“There could be a reassessment of the central contracts and the players could find their salaries and fees being cut if the Chairman decides to react strongly to the team’s recent woeful performances,” the source told PTI.

The PCB will strictly enforce its two-NOCS (No Objection Certificate) policy for T20 leagues. This means that centrally and domestically contracted players can participate in a maximum of two overseas leagues per year, in addition to the Pakistan Super League (PSL).

All players who sign central and domestic contracts in Pakistan cricket have to adhere to a clause that states that a player can only be issued an NOC for a maximum of two overseas leagues besides playing in the Pakistan Super League in a year.

The board has not yet issued any NOCs to youngsters Azam Khan and Saim Ayub to play in the Caribbean Premier League even though both were retained by their respective teams for this season.
