The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided to cut the number of centrally contracted players by a significant amount, but increase the salaries of those who get a new contract, according to sources.
According to The News International, the sources indicate that the PCB will slash the number of contracted players from 33 to between 15 and 17 for the new season.
This comes after the central contracts for 33 players expired on June 30, the sources said.
The sources added that the board has also decided to reduce the number of centrally contracted women players.
Currently, there are 10 women who have central contracts.
Furthermore, the E category will be removed when the new central contracts are handed out.
The sources said the PCB’s managing director Wasim Khan has decided to cut down the number of central contracts, but increase the amount players get.
