It seems like the controversies and conundrums in the Pakistan Cricket are not going to end very soon. In the recent line of developments, the involvement of former skipper Babar Azam and current T20I skipper Shaheen Afridi in a space on X (formerly Twitter). A lot of fans attended these sessions, including several 20,000 in Babar Azam’s session followed by 4000 in Shaheen Afridi’s session. 

Meanwhile, a source close to PCB revealed that the presence of both the stars arranged by their agents didn’t go down well with the Pakistan Cricket Board. The source revealed PCB's thoughts regarding their revisit of some of the clauses in the contracts of the cricketers who are active for the national team of Pakistan.

Here's what the PCB source said about the board's stance

“The PCB will look to revisit some of the clauses that the centrally contracted players need to adhere to. The clauses covering the social media activities of contracted players are now being reviewed again by the board because it is concerned such public Q and A sessions could result in unnecessary controversies,” said the PCB source.

“Every PCB chairman has tried to run the board in his way and in some cases, even ignored the written clauses of the central contracts and given special permissions to players in the past 12 months. Naqvi clearly wants a revised media policy for players and for this, the PCB could revise some clauses of the central contracts,” the source added later.

Meanwhile, some of the media reports have learned that the newly elected president of the Pakistan Cricket Board, Mohsin Naqvi is looking ahead to check all the details regarding the centrally contracted cricketers. Apart from that, he has also advised the officials to provide all the details of the media interactions and social media activities of the cricketers for the last couple of months, especially since the ODI World Cup 2023 in India.
