Following Pakistan’s early exit from the T20 World Cup 2024, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) is set to review the remuneration packages of its centrally contracted players. The decision comes after the USA vs Ireland match was called off due to rain, sealing Pakistan’s fate. PCB Chairman Mohsin Naqvi and senior officials met on Friday to discuss potential changes to player contracts.

PCB to Review Player Remuneration Packages After Babar and Team’s Early T20 World Cup Exit

This marks the third time Pakistan has been eliminated in the preliminary round of the T20 World Cup. The current central contracts, signed on July 1, 2023, under former Chairman Zaka Ashraf, included provisions for increased remunerations over three years. However, the recent tournament disappointment has prompted a reassessment of these financial packages.

The PCB faces a crucial decision on whether to retain existing remuneration packages or implement changes. The goal is to balance player motivation with performance-based rewards, aligning player incentives with contributions to team success. This review could significantly impact players’ futures and the direction of Pakistan cricket.

Babar Azam’s team failed to qualify for the Super 8s after the USA vs Ireland match was abandoned due to rain. Pakistan lost to the USA in a Super Over and suffered a 6-run defeat against arch-rivals India in New York, registering only 2 points in their Group A campaign. Their only victory came against Canada, chasing 107 runs in 17.4 overs at a slow pace.

The PCB aims to ensure financial packages are justified by players’ performances, with potential contract changes aimed at better aligning rewards with team and individual success. These decisions will have a long-term impact on player morale and overall team performance.
