Mohammad Amir, Wahab Riaz likely to miss central contracts


Lahore: Experienced pacers Mohammad Amir and Wahab Riaz are likely to be dropped from renewed Central Contracts which will be announced tomorrow [Tuesday].

According to the sources, Amir and Wahab will not be in central contracts as the final list of players has been sent to the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB)’s chairman Ehsan Mani for approval.

Marred by fitness issues, Hasan Ali is also likely to be excluded from the central contracts whereas former skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed has been demoted to B category from A.

Sources further told that Test skipper Azhar Ali has been promoted to A category whereas Naseem Shah, Mohammad Musa, and Mohammad Husnain will be in central contracts for the first time.

It must be noted here that current central contracts will expire on June 30. New central contracts will come into effect from July 1. 19 to 20 players are expected to get the new central contracts.
