Lahore: The Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) has announced to give financial rewards to the ground staff who worked tirelessly during the fifth edition of the Pakistan Super League (PSL).
63 ground staff across Karachi, Lahore, Multan and Rawalpindi, will receive a 50 percent bonus on their salaries for the month of August. In addition, the board will also provide a reward of PKR10,000 to five non-PCB employed daily wagers.
PSL season five was entirely held in Pakistan earlier this year before the knockout stage was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Fans were treated with high-quality cricketing action and made their way to stadia all over the country was in part due to the effortless work of these 68 ground staff, who produced high-quality cricket pitches besides preparing immaculate outfields that resulted in riveting cricketing action,” PCB acknowledged in a statement.
PCB Chief Operating Officer (COO) Salman Naseer also praised ground staff as their work is of utmost importance while hosting cricket matches.
“It is extremely important that their work is acknowledged and they are rewarded for their efforts,” he said,
“They worked with great dedication round the clock to deliver top-quality pitches and outfields, which produced some of the most exciting T20 matches,” he added.
