For the first time in history, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) established separate red ball and white ball cricket central contracts, respectively.However, PCB will discourage its top players from competing in foreign leagues, where the board is willing to pay them compensatory money, according to a press release from the PCB.The BoG also approved changes in the mens central contracts structure, according to PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja.The match allowance for non-playing players has been increased by 50 to 70 percent.In the next 16 months, we will host four international tournaments, two World Cups, among others.This acceptance of white-ball specialists as part of the contract market will help us to develop two distinct squads that can be used in both white and red-ball cricket.According to Ramiz Raja, we will also have a wider variety of talent to showcase to the world.We've also accumulated a substantial fund pool to discourage our elite players from attending additional off-season tournaments. If advanced retainers are refused, the PCB will pay them.The number of centrally contracted players has risen.Since September 20, the Pakistan mens cricket team has achieved an impressive 75% success rate in all formats, the highest among all Test-playing nations.Pakistan is now ranked fifth in Tests (up by one), third in ODIs (up by three and the highest since January 2017), and third in T20Is (up by one), according to Ramiz. We'll also have a larger range of talent to showcase to the world, he said.
