A considerable fund allocation is very crucial for any sports institution to grow and for the players to get high-quality training, good infrastructure for practicing, and enough matches to keep sharpening their skills, gain experience, learn from players across the world and be trained by the best fitness coaches as well.
The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) recently concluded its Board of Governors meeting and is now set to announce the latest central contracts for 2022-23. The Pakistan Cricket Board of Governors has approved an annual budget of 15 billion Rupees. 78 percent of which will be allocated and utilized for cricket activities.
There will be a 15 percent increase in retainers across all the categories of players and a single contract system is to be followed. The pool of centrally contracted women’s team is also likely to be increased up to 25 players. This is likely to boost a lot of confidence as well as to increase the security and is a positive move that will surely pull more young talents from Pakistan towards women’s cricket.
Key decisions from PCB Board of Governors Meeting:
• 15% increase in retainers across all categories.

The 22 Yard stretch that molded me, is what I hold sacred. A cricketer weaving life’s innings into words. A Rohit Sharma Admirer always. I believe writing and cricket aren’t passions, but ways of life, so truly living the dream!
