The contracts will now be effective till July 31 before the new 12-month contracts will come into effect from August 1.

In the 2019-20 season, the PCB had offered 192 contracts to the domestic cricketers of which 186 cricketers had accepted the contracts.

“As part of a comprehensive and extensive review process, we are conducting appraisals of all coaches, which is a three-phase process including self-assessment, interviews and feedback from players and fellow coaches,” Director High Performance Nadeem Khan said.
