Sources confirmed ARY Sports that all the fired employees have been providing services in the PCB for over the last 10 years.


Moreover, a helper in the PCB told ARY Sports that more employees at the lower levels are on target and will be given notice soon. “PCB is hiring people on top posts and firing employees with a salary under PKR 50,000, this is totally unfair,” he reiterated.

“If PCB is suffering through financial crisis then why don’t they consider a reduction in salaries of people on the higher posts, those who are taking salaries in millions?” he asked.
