Since the ICC World Cup 2019, Pakistan captain Sarfaraz Ahmed had started the opposite day. Since this World Cup, not only did he get big out of the team, but now he has also got a shock in the central contract of Pakistan cricket. The Pakistan Cricket Board has made changes in the central contract with the players, in which Sarfraz, who was the captain of Pakistan, has been sent from grade A to B. While Pakistan fast bowlers Hasan Ali, Wahab Riaz and Mohammad Aamir have been ruled out of the central contract. At the same time, young fast bowlers Shaheen Afridi and Azhar Ali have been promoted from grade B to A. Not only this, the newly appointed captain of Pakistan team Babar Azam has also been brought from grade B to A.
On the other hand, when it comes to the emerging Pakistani players, Haider Ali, Mohammad Hasnain, Haris Rauf and Naseem Shah have been brought in the grade C of the central contract. At the same time, Pakistan’s Test cricket team player Yasir Shah has been demoted and has been sent from grade A to B. While Imam-ul-Haq, nephew of former captain Inzamam Hal Haq and opener of Pakistan team, has also been sent from grade B to C.
Yasir Shah has now been placed in Grade B along with Sarfraz Ahmed, Asad Shafiq, Haris Sohail, Mohammad Abbas and Shadab Khan due to continuous poor performance since 2019. While three players Abid Ali, Mohammad Rizwan, and Shaan Masood have been brought from grade C to B.

In this way, 750,000 Pakistani rupees will be given to Pakistani players with Grade B and 550,000 Pakistani rupees to Grade C players as a yearly contract. In which two new players have been entered, Nasim and Iftikhar. It already has Fakhar Zaman, Imad Wasim, Imam and Usman Shenwari. Whereas Grade A players will get 1.1 million Pakistani rupees annually as contracts. Which will be valid from 1 July 2020 to 31 June 2021.
Let me tell you that both Aamir and Riyaz had retired from Test cricket last year to give their ODI career with Pakistan and reduce workload. Thus, both were placed in the category of C only last year. After which, now they have been removed from the central contract by Pakistan Cricket.
