Pakistan Cricket Council (PCB) recently announced a list of men’s center contracts for 2020-21. Fast-bowler Shaheen Afridi and Test captain Azhar Ali were promoted from category B to A, joining Babar Azam in the top category. The likes of Iftikhar Ahmad and Naseem Shah are the two new faces on the list of 18 players for this season.
Virat Kohli’s annual salary is almost similar to the combined salary of the entire Pakistani team
However, several important emissions included Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz and Hasan Ali. Former captains Sarfaraz Ahmed and Yasir Shah have been demoted from categories A to B. As soon as PCB announced a list of contracts and follower fees, fans on Twitter began comparing the costs of Indian and Pakistani players. Let’s see how big is the difference between the follower fees of the two cricket boards.
The PCB Central Contract has been divided into three categories, A, B and C. The following is the division of wages made by PCB based on these categories:
Category A: 1.32 crore PKR (USD 81,576) per year
Category B: 90 lakh PKR (USD 55,627) per year
Category C: 66 lakh PKR (USD 40,793) per year
As for the BCCI central contract, there are four values, A +, A, B and C. This is how BCCI divides its players into these categories and their salaries:
Class A +: INR 7 crore (USD 927,336) per year
Class A: INR 5 crore (USD 662,383) per year
Class B: INR 3 crore (USD 397,430) per year
Class C: INR 1 crore (USD 132,476) per year
When a comparison is made between the highest value in the two contracts (A + in BCCI and A in PCB), a massive dichotomy in the salary of the two boards is seen. While Pakistan’s top three generate nearly USD 280,000 combined in Grade A contracts according to current exchange rates, one player on the BCCI paygrade (B) earns nearly USD 400,000 per year.
Overall, PCB will spend around PKR 157 million per year for players contracted centrally in categories A, B and C, which roughly translates to around USD 990,000. This amount is only around $ 63,000 more than what only Indian captain Virat Kohli gets each year through his BCCI contract,
