Karachi, Thu, 15 Mar 2012 ANI

Karachi, Mar 15(ANI): Pakistan cricketers are set to get a salary hike of around 25 to 35 percent when the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) announces the new central contracts list.


"Intikhab Alam has been given the task of recommending an increase in pay scale keeping in mind players' performances and also the board's financial position. He has tentatively recommended an increase of 25 to 35 percent," a senior PCB official was quoted, as saying.


Players will also get a hike in their present match fees paid out on the slab system, The Daily Times reports.


"The pay rise will definitely be incorporated in the central contracts but there are 90 percent chances of this happening in the match fees as well," the official added.


He said Intikhab would shortly send his recommendations to the PCB chairman Zaka Ashraf who will give the final approval.


"The matter has already been formally discussed in the governing council meeting where the feeling was that after three years, the players deserve a pay increase," the source added.


The senior-most players earn between 350,000 and 300,000 rupees as Test match and ODI fees and other centrally contracted players get salaries in three categories in the range of 175,000 and 125,000 rupees.


The PCB also awards 'special win bonuses' beside cash awards for individual performances. (ANI)
