Centrally recruited cricketers in Pakistan will contribute Rs 5 million to the national government emergency fund to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pakistan Cricket Board President Ehsan Mani said on Wednesday that, apart from centrally recruited players who contribute Rs 5 million, board employees, up to the level of senior manager, will contribute the salary of a day.

Employees as general managers or in higher positions will give two days of salary to the fund.

"The PCB will collect all these funds and deposit them in the government's coronavirus fund," he said.

Pakistan has recorded more than 1,000 positive cases of the deadly virus, which has claimed more than 19,000 lives worldwide.

"It is the story of the cricket board that we always stand behind the government in difficult times," said Mani.

The PCB has already given its high-performance center in Karachi at the national stadium to be used by paramedical staff working at the special coronavirus hospital established at the city's exhibition center.

Mani said that although the virus outbreak has disrupted cricket, it was far more important for the nation to support the government and also take all precautionary measures during the pandemic.

Players hired centrally in Pakistan are entitled to monthly salaries ranging from Rs 5 to 12 lakh in addition to the match fee and other earnings.
