After a sum of 10 million rupees were awarded to Pakistan’s chief selector Inzamam-ul-Haq for its victorious Champions Trophy campaign a lot of doubts and questions are being raised over the move.
Former chief selector, Iqbal Qasim said, “It makes no sense to give the chief selector such a huge amount while the head coach and other coaching staff have got five million rupees each for the Champions Trophy win.”
“Then why this disparity between the money given to the chief selector and other selectors,” he also asked.
Another former chief selector Mohsin Hasan Khan also said that he failed to understand the logic behind this move. In an interview, he said, “And when have chief selector’s ever been rewarded with cash prizes if the team has done well. The same money could have been used for better development purposes,” he said.
Meanwhile PTI also quoted another source who said, “Initially the list/notification by the PM’s office had said while the players would get 10 million each and the head coach and coaches 5 million each but later it was decided to reduce the amount for some members of the team staff including the media manager, social media manager, physio, masseur etc and the same amount was utilized for rewarding the selectors.”
It may be recalled here that Inzamam-Ul-Haq also draws a monthly salary of 1.2 million while the rest of the selectors bag a sum of 0.3 million from the PCB.
