Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan Set to Lose Elite Category in PCB Central Contract

The Pakistan Cricket Team white-ball Captain Babar Azam and wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan are likely to be dropped from PCB Central Contract Category (A). This is just after the green team was eliminated from the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 in the USA and WI.


According to sources, the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will work on a new central contract for the national players in progress.

The PCB central contracts will be finalized by a new, smaller selection committee. The national cricket team’s salary, however, won’t change.

The Green Shirts found the competition tough as they were unable to go past the league stage.

Naseem Shah, Shahnawaz Dahani, Mir Hamza, Khurram Shahzad, and Aamir Jamal are being considered for selection in the fast bowling department.

According to local media, Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium and Multan Stadium are under consideration to host this two-match test series.
