“The Pakistan Cricket Board’s focus is to invest the money that it earns back in cricket by providing the players a bigger chunk of the pie through substantial and lucrative rewards so they excel in the game,” the Pakistan Cricket Board’s (PCB) Director High Performance, Nadeem Khan, was quoted as saying by Cricket Pakistan.
“There has been a massive improvement in the remuneration structure this year which presents better earning opportunities for the players. The PCB despite the Covid-19 pandemic has invested more in the prize money pool with the number of group matches being doubled this year. The PCB had put in great effort to make sure that the 2020-21 domestic season was organised as it was important for the livelihood of our players.
“As such, now the players not only have more competitive cricket to polish their skills and get more matches under their belt, but they also have more earning opportunities.”
The National T20 Cup will get underway on September 30 and will be held in both Multan and Rawalpindi. The final will be held in Rawalpindi on October 18.
