Quaid-e-Azam trophy is contemplated, as one of the best domestic tournaments of Pakistan. Many domestic stars strive hard to prove their mettle against the top stars of Pakistan. The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has taken a great initiative, by injecting over one Billion PKR in this season.
“Despite a reduction in the number of teams, leading to a lesser number of matches, in the reformed domestic structure, the PCB will inject over Rs 1 billion this season,” the PCB source said.
The 192 contracted players will earn an amount of PKR 600000 within one year. In the 2018-2019 seasons, players earned PKE 50,000 but this year, players are acquiring huge increments. This year, players are getting a salary of PKR 75000 as their match fee.
“The prize money for domestic events has also been increased manifold. The winning prize money for the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy has been increased by 233 percent, along with a surge of 150 and 100 percent in the winning prize money for the Pakistan Cup One-Day Tournament and National T20 Cup,” the PCB source said.
Runners up of this alluring Trophy will take PKR 5 million. And the winner of the country’s first-class tournament will be awarded a whopping amount of PKR 10 million.
The new structure along with enhancing the quality of cricket at the first-class level is designed to improve the earnings of domestic cricketers, PCB CEO Wasim Khan said
He added that for a long time the cricketers were deprived of the income that they rightfully deserved. “Our aim is to develop cricket as a career option,” said Wasim.
This initiative will boost the morale of players and succor them to give their supreme efforts for their respective teams.
