Pakistan Cricket Team Player : Even before the One Day World Cup, the Pakistan Cricket Board is faced with a big crisis. According to reports, the players of the Pakistan team have not received their salaries for the past four months. The team’s players are threatening to boycott World Cup promotions and sponsorship logos over non-payment of salaries. This could create a big problem for the PCB before the World Cup.
According to a report by ‘Cricket Pakistan’, Pakistan players have not received their salary or match fee for the past four months. So the players are upset. Earlier reports claimed that there would be a huge increase in the salaries of the Pakistani players, but the new contract is yet to be signed.
A Pakistan team player informed Cricket Pakistan on condition of anonymity. He said, “We are ready to represent Pakistan for free, but the question is why to encourage sponsors who are related to the board. During the World Cup, we will not be associated with ICC’s commercial advertisements.”
Reports say that the players are demanding a share of revenue from the ICC and sponsors. Pakistan Cricket Board will get around 9.8 billion rupees from ICC and sponsors.
