His demotion to category B may have raised a few eyebrows in Pakistan circles, but seasoned batsman Younis Khan is “expected” to sign on the dotted line as the PCB makes no “exceptions” for any person, insists chief selector Moin Khan.
“The players who are offered these contracts are expected to sign the contracts because the board can’t make exceptions for anyone,” Moin Khan said.
Several PCB officials have insisted that it was compulsory for players to sign the contracts. Asked if any cricketer didn’t wish to sign and wants to play without a central contract for Pakistan as Younis Khan had indicated, Moin Khan said, “I think this is a policy which only the board can best explain.”
His remarks came just hours after yet another senior PCB official, Zakir Khan had said it was mandatory for cricketers to sign the agreements.
