The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) on Thursday introduced that it’s going to lengthen the contracts of all home gamers and coaches, expiring on June 30, until July 31 sooner than the brand new 12-month contracts will come into impact from August 1.
“The decision has been made by the High-Performance Department, which is presently busy carrying out a 360-degree appraisal of all its coaches. The process is expected to conclude early next month with the six Cricket Association sides to be confirmed by the end of July,” the PCB stated in a unlock.
In the 2019-20 season, the PCB had presented 192 contracts to the home cricketers of which 186 cricketers had approved the contracts.
“As part of a comprehensive and extensive review process, we are conducting appraisals of all coaches, which is a three-phase process including self-assessment, interviews and feedback from players and fellow coaches,” Director – High Performance, Nadeem Khan stated.
“This is the modern 360-degree way of appraising professionals as we remain committed to put in place the best available coaches who can provide best coaching and training to the players, which, in turn, will contribute to further enhance the quality of our domestic cricket,” he added.
Khan stays positive concerning the go back of the home cricket season because of the coronavirus pandemic.
“It is premature to predict when we will be able to start our 2020-21 domestic cricket season due to the evolving Covid-19 situation. But, internally, we need to be ready to start the season at a short notice,” Khan concluded.
