The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has decided against increasing the match fees for the centrally contracted players of the country. All players, with the central contracts, will be playing for the same amount as before.

Many players recently signed their respective contracts, while some have yet to sign their contracts because they are stuck at home due to the coronavirus. This is the first instance where family insurance has been added to the contract.

According to details, the PCB had hinted at an increase in match fees for the centrally contracted players, however, this has not been the case.
