In order to support former players, match officials, scorers, and ground staff who are struggling through financial hardships amid Covid-19, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chief Executive Wasim Khan on Saturday announced to personally donate a total of Rs1.5 million.
“I have decided to personally make this donation to help those players, match officials, scorers and ground staff who are in dire need of financial assistance,” said Wasim Khan, in a statement.
“This small contribution is to support the Chairman’s Welfare Fund that is already in place and to show solidarity with him as we look to provide as much support to the players, match officials, scorers and ground staff facing hardships in these tough economic times,” he added.
Khan informed that the cricket board has decided to tighten its expenditure over the next 12 months and will only award increases to staffers who earn PKR100,000 a month or less.
This will commence from the new fiscal year, which starts on 1 July.
