LAHORE: All players of the Pakistan cricket team has signed central contract.
Captain Younis Khan said that the players had made silent protest on some clauses of the central contract but the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) removed the players objections for which he is grateful to the board.
The PCB had offered central contract to 27 players two months ago but nine players had reservations including obtaining the central contract again after playing county cricket and fees for playing Twenty20 cricket.
After the board has now approved thse demands, the players will receive the payment of Rs150,000 to 250,000 for playing Twenty20 cricket on the basis of their categories.
Younis Khan said that sometimes players have to fight for their rights and therefore they made silent protest.
He said that there like Australia, there should be also be a players association in Pakistan.
