Players, management to get CT prize money

June 29, 2017 | By

There was a common impression, or you may call it misconception, that Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) will take part of the Champions trophy prize money.

But a formula has been devised according to which the PCB will keep no penny from the prize money of 2.2 million dollars which the Pakistan team won along with a glittering trophy.

As per the formula the 2.2 million dollars prize money will be divided into 17 shares — 16 squad players including Wahab Riaz who was replaced with Rumman Raees after suffering injury.

That means each player will get 1.294 lakh dollars (around 12.9 million rupees) while the 17th part (another 1.294 lakh dollars) will be equally distributed among the team personnel.

As per the PCB details the team staff was comprised of 13 people including the two media personnel, security manager and incharge tour operations and team manager Talat Ali.

Donald Dave Albert, the masseur from the Caribbean, was temporary staff member hired on a day-to-day fee. All these five members will not get any part of the prize money.

That leaves seven members in head coach Mickey Arthur, bowling coach Azhar Mahmood, batting coach Grant Flower, Fielding coach Steve Rixon, Physio Shane Hayes, Fitness trainer Grant Luden and analyst Mohammad Talha.

PCB has received an amount of 125,000 dollars as participation fee from the ICC as they usually get from the multinational ICC events.
