PCB mulls new clauses in contract
PCB is mulling new clauses in the players' central contracts for 2010 which lay more emphasis on the performance and fitness level.
Wasim Bari, PCB chief operating officer, said the new clauses will be first discussed with the central contracts committee tomorrow during a meeting before being incorporated.

"We intend to give contracts to 28 to 29 players but we will also have stipends for the top performers in the domestic season and national under-19 team. We have around four new clauses in the contract which will be discussed with the central contracts committee on Thursday," Bari said.

Bari, without revealing much about the meeting, said, "those players who are not fit or injured or have not performed will not get the new contracts."

However, he made it clear that the board has no intention to reduce the monthly retainers given to players in the new contract.

"They will get the same amount -- Rs 250,000 in top category, Rs 175,000 for B category and Rs 125,000 for C category."

The contract committee includes Bari, Zakir Khan the director cricket operations and chief selector, Iqbal Qasim.

Meanwhile, some sources close to the development, said that the new clauses would make it binding for all top players to feature in the domestic Quaid-e-Azam Trophy while not performing the national duty.

"The board will discourage players from going abroad to play in foreign leagues during the domestic home season," a source said.

"Most likely, players who finish in the top three or five of the bowling and batting lists will get financial incentives with stipends," the source added.

The sources also noted that there is deliberation on giving more incentives to players who excel in all three forms of the game -- Test, ODIs and Twenty20 cricket.

"But there is another school of thought that wants that more incentives should be given to those players who play Test cricket."
