PCB Chief Announces $100,000 Reward for Each Player if Pakistan Wins T20 World Cup

Mohsin Naqvi, the Chairman of the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), has declared a substantial reward for the national cricket team. The reward, a whopping $100,000, will be given to each player should they emerge victorious in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

This announcement was made during Mohsin Naqvi’s visit to the Gaddafi Stadium, where he spent a considerable two hours engaging in discussions with the players and officials. The aim of his visit was to uplift the spirits of the national players and motivate them ahead of the prestigious tournament.

In addition to the monetary reward, Mohsin Naqvi also presented special green shirts to two players in recognition of their achievements. Mohammad Rizwan was honored for surpassing 3000 runs in T20 matches, and Naseem Shah was recognized for reaching 100 wickets in T20 matches. These gestures further demonstrated Naqvi’s support for the team and his belief in their abilities.

The team is set to depart for a T20 series against Ireland and England. This series will serve as a crucial preparatory phase before the World Cup. Pakistan will play a total of 7 T20 matches before World Cup. Naqvi expressed his hope that the team would raise the Pakistan flag high and bring glory to the nation.

However, the team has recently faced a setback with the visa rejection of their left-arm fast bowler, Mohammad Amir. Despite this, the team remains optimistic and focused on their goal.

In other news, Babar Azam, the skipper of the Pakistan limited-overs team, has expressed his expectations from Saim Ayub to play aggressive cricket in the upcoming T20 World Cup. He also expressed optimism that the appointment of Gary Kirsten as the head coach of Pakistan’s white-ball side will certainly improve its performance.

The T20 World Cup is scheduled for June, and all teams are undoubtedly aiming to play aggressive cricket. The Pakistan cricket team, with openers Mohammad Rizwan and Babar Azam leading the charge, has long been criticized for their low strike rates in T20 cricket. However, with the new incentive announced by Naqvi, the team is expected to up their game and bring home the trophy.

The PCB chief’s announcement of a $100,000 reward for each player if Pakistan wins the T20 World Cup has certainly boosted the team’s morale. Despite the challenges, the team is united and ready to take on the world in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
