Ahmed Shahzad Disappoint about Central Contract


Lahore, Pakistan Cricket Board announced the names of the players in different categories of the central contract. Ahmed Shahzad was demoted from category C to the category D and he is thinking over not to sign on the central contract. He was complaining that he did not involve in the match fixing or any activity, which can defame the country. Umra Akmal has also severe reservations over the decision of the contract committee. These two cricketers are selected in the Platinum category of the PSL and in the PCB central contract, they are chosen in the last category D and they will talk with PCB officials over this injustice.

Haris Sohail has been away from the international cricket since May 2015 and he maintained their C category and he got lac of rupees stay at his home. According to the details, the selection committee is comprised of the chief selector, Inzamam Ul Haq, Director Cricket Academies Mudassar Nazar, Head Coach Mickey Arthur and General Manager Cricket Operations, Usman Wahla and this committee issued the list of the cricketers, who got the central contract. In this list, Muhammad Hafeez is kept in the A category, and Haris Sohail will get lac of rupees, who did not play any match for Pakistan. Ahmed Shahzad was considered the perfect player for three formats of cricket some times before and he is pushed from C category to the D category.

Fawad Alam scored a lot in the domestic cricket but he was rewarded by making captain of the A team of Pakistan. Now his name is not included in the central contract but he was included in the C category before this list. It is expected that Ahmed Shahzad manage a press conference before departure to Bangladesh to play the Bangladesh Premier League.

Umar Akmal is also not happy with this behavior of the PCB with him and on the other side, Haris Sohail played last match on 29 May 2015 and he has been receiving the pay from PCB. He played only 22 ODIs and 4 T20I matches after making debut in 2013 and now his fitness is suspicious but he is kept in the category C. The ex coach, Waqar Younis gave the report against these two players and on the basis of this report, these two players were dropped from the national team.

Umar Akmal showed good performance in the domestic cricket. He had a meeting with PCB chairman, Sheheryar Khan and getting the clearance, he was selected for the T20i and OPDI series. But other players showed their performance and he played only one ball during the tour. Both the cricketers were selected in the Platinum category of PSL but they were given the D category of the central contract.
