The left-arm painter of Pakistan, Mohammad Amir, refused a domestic contract offer by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB). Amir is on the list of domestic contracts for crickets in Category A and has received a monthly income of Rs. 185,000.
Amir feels the PCB will grant a young cricketer its contract to empower new cricketers. In the coming domestic year Amir will still be eligible to be selected, and only the matching fee and daily allowance during the whole season will be paid.
The 29-year-old still can decide not a full domestic season contract but a tournament based agreement. This is in keeping with Amir’s choice not to play cricket first class, with its focus exclusively on playing cricket with limited excesses.
In the same way, Kamran Akmal and Wahab Riaz did not choose a full domestic contract, and tournament orders are expected to be given.
PCB recently revealed a complete list of 191 players with a large pay rise handed contracts for the next domestic season.Each player in the four categories is rewarded with significantly higher pay than in the previous seasons since Pakistan’s domestic cricket structure has altered.
