The Pakistan Super League in Pakistan turned to be a very successful league & thus PCB decided to award 63 Ground staff with 50% bonus.
PCB has decided to reward 63 ground staff who has worked hard day & night during the fifth edition of the PSL with 50% bonus on their fixed salaries in the month of August. PCB said in its Official Statement, “As many as 63 ground staff – across Karachi, Lahore, Multan and Rawalpindi – will receive a 50 per cent bonus on their salaries for the month of August. In addition, the board will also provide a reward of PKR 10,000 to five non-PCB employed daily wagers,”
The PCB took a historic step of hosting the entire edition of the PSL in Pakistan for the first time ever before the playoffs & finals got postponed forcefully due to the rising havoc of COVID-19 Pandemic.
“That the 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. The crowd attendance at all four venues was a staggering 87 per cent,” read a PCB statement.
“The ground staff have a thankless job. Their work is of the utmost importance in smooth execution of cricket matches so it is extremely important that their work is acknowledged and they are rewarded for their efforts,” said PCB Chief Operating Officer Salman Naseer.
“Our ground staff were outstanding during the PSL earlier this year especially when they were confronted with adverse weather conditions. 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.
