Default Pakistan decide to keep central contracts

Pakistan decide to keep central contracts
Written by 7DAYS | Sunday, 12 June 2005

PAKISTAN will continue with the system of awarding central contracts to its players but those with fitness or bowling action problems will only be given short-term deals. “Players who have been unfit or under scrutiny for suspect bowling actions would have their contracts reviewed after six months,” said Abbas Zaidi, director of operations for the Pakistan Cricket Board.

Fast bowlers Shoaib Akhtar, Muhammad Sami, Shabbir Ahmed and Umar Gul have all faced fitness problems in recent times while Shabbir was reported for a third time for a suspect action after the first Test against West Indies in Barbados last month. Shoaib, Sami and Gul were not considered for the West Indies tour because of fitness problems.

Zaidi said that the board would award fresh contracts from July 10 but the names of the players would be finalised shortly. Pakistan introduced central contracts for its players on the basis of seniority and performances last December with Shoaib and Sami being included in the list of 17 players who were awarded these contracts.

Yes, BCB was one of the first cricketing nations to following th ACB system of issuing central contracts to a pool of players, and also a limit as to how many pool players can play in the certain club/division etc.
It helps bring out other players and now the trend is that in our domestic cricket, young players in their late teens are blossoming. With financial backing our cricketers can concentrate on the game. Back in the earlier days, cricketers had a full-time job to sustain their lives.

PCB announces fresh contracts with incentives for players

The Pakistan Cricket Board today announced that it would offer fresh one-year contracts to its players with a six-month review for cricketers who have been unfit or under scrutiny for illegal bowling actions.

The PCB, in a media release after the ad hoc committee meeting in Lahore, said: "The adhoc committee approved the continuation of central contracts for another year. One year contracts would be given from July 10, 1005 (after the present contracts expire on June 20, 2005) with a six months review for cricketers who have been unfit or under scrutiny for illegal bowling actions." The PCB didn't name any players but the statement clearly pointed that unfit cricketers included pacemen Shoaib Akhtar and Umar Gul while the bowler with suspect bowling action was Shabbir Ahmed. Gul and Shabbir didn't get the contracts in December last year.

Shoaib Akhtar, who is retained in Category A along with Inzamam-ul-Haq, Yousuf Youhana and Abdul Razzaq with a monthly retainer of Rs 225,000, has not played for Pakistan since returning halfway from the Australian tour in the second week of January.

The PCB further decided that the present points system method for categorisation had been successful and that additional points should be included to provide individual incentives for high performance.
