Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has appointed Faisal Mirza as the consultant for chairman Ramiz Raja's dream project Pakistan Junior League (PJL).
The T20 competition, comprising of U19 stars across the world, will be held in October at Lahore's Gaddafi Stadium.
According to details, PCB has opted to take the services of Faisal Mirza, who was also part of the initial Pakistan Super League (PSL).
In July 2015, he was appointed as PSL's Head of Player Acquisition with a monthly salary of PKR 400,000.
In May 2016, an extraordinary increase of PKR 485,000 was made in the name of PSL allowance and Faisal's salary increased to PKR 885,000 per month. He resigned in July 2017.
Later, the audit report also raised objections to Faisal Mirza's unannounced appointment and salary increase.
PCB have once again hired his services as a consultant for PJL, for which no advertisement had been posted.
When contacted, PCB Media Director Samiul Hasan Burney said: "Faisal Mirza started his work last month, he was appointed as a consultant, so there was no need to advertise. He will serve until the conclusion of PJL's first edition."
It must be noted that Faisal Mirza has been serving as the media manager of Karachi Kings for the last few years.
