Cash-stripped board pays lavish salaries

Karachi:

The Pakistan Cricket Board may claim to be facing financial difficulties but this has not prevented its officials from spending lavishly on administrative expenses and salaries.

According to documents submitted by the board in the national assembly in response to questions put forward by some members, it has transpired that the PCB presently employs 523 officials in different grades.

For a country faced with security issues and with little hope of international cricket being revived soon in Pakistan, the number of employees surprised many members of parliament and sports minister Engineer Shaukatullah, who has been very impressed with the working of the board and its Chairman Ijaz Butt.

The salary structure and perks of the board, especially for its employees on higher position, also makes interesting reading.
