The PCB’s central contract list 2020-21 has been issued but Mohammad Hafeez has once again denied being on the list. The terrific all-rounder was issued Category C but he refused to be the part.
The incident earlier happened when Hafeez chose to stay contract-less and requested PCB to give his salary to a youngster player.
Apart from Hafeez, many Pakistani players either are motivated to the above category or have been sliding down. Written below are the names.
Hafeez once again making news, read why
Mohammad Rizwan, who has been Pakistan’s top test scorer, has been promoted to category C on PCB’s central contract list 2020-21. He earlier was in category B.
Other than him, Fawad Alam, whose decade’s had been crushed under the selection committee, is finally the official record chasing player.
As a consequence of his breathtaking scores in Tests recently, he has been elevated to Category C oof PCB from the Domestic A+ category.
Wasim Khan, the CEO of the PCB says,
“I want to congratulate Rizwan and Fawad for earning well-deserved and well-earned promotions. This is a reward for their hard work and high-quality performances during the difficult and challenging bio-secure environments that tested their determination, resolve, commitment, mental toughness, and physical fitness to the limits.
“The decision to promote the players was made during a meeting with the Chair of the Selection Committee, Muhammad Wasim, while we were reviewing player performances in the 2020-21 season and discussing the upcoming commitments.
“It was agreed during the meeting that three players were the most deserving and outstanding performers in the season to date and, as such, they needed to be rewarded now instead of waiting for the time when PCB Central Contract List for 2021-22 will be reviewed and announced.
“However, Mohammad Hafeez declined the reward and while I am disappointed, I fully respect his decision. He wants to wait for the PCB Central Contract 2021-22 list, which he is fully entitled to. Hafeez has been one of our star performers of the season and we hope he will carry the form and momentum to Africa.
“I am sure this merit and the performance-based decision will once again send out a loud and clear message to all professional cricketers that the PCB will not only recognize, appreciate and acknowledge their performances and achievements but will also reward them so that they can strive to do better next time.”
