The Pakistan Cricket Board acknowledged hard work of its ground staff on Friday when it announced financial rewards for those who worked tirelessly during the fifth edition of the HBL Pakistan Super League.
According to details, 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 reward of PKR10,000 to five non-PCB employed daily wagers. The PCB created history earlier this year when it hosted an entire edition of the HBL PSL in Pakistan for the first time ever before the playoffs and final were postponed due to the 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.
