PCB chairman mohsin naqvi incentivizes national players ahead of T20 world cup.

In a bid to motivate the national cricket team, Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) Chairman Mohsin Naqvi has announced a substantial incentive for players, promising each member a hefty sum of $100,000 should the Green Shirts emerge victorious in the upcoming T20 World Cup scheduled for June this year.

Naqvi revealed this generous offer during a meeting held with the national players at Gaddafi Stadium on Sunday, where he spent two hours engaging with the team to bolster their spirits before their imminent departure for tours of Ireland, England, and the T20 World Cup.

During the interaction, Naqvi also hosted a luncheon for both players and officials at a local hotel, expressing his confidence in the team’s abilities and urging them to play without pressure while giving their utmost on the field.

“The victory will be yours, and any defeat will be mine,” Naqvi reassured the players, emphasizing his unwavering support for the team.

Mohsin Naqvi further highlighted the unity among the players and voiced his anticipation for an outstanding performance from Shaheen Shah Afridi in the upcoming World Cup, acknowledging the nation’s high expectations from the team.

In recognition of their individual achievements, Naqvi presented special green shirts to Muhammad Rizwan for surpassing 3,000 runs in T20 matches, and Nasim Shah for reaching 100 wickets in T20 matches.

Assuring the prompt resolution of any player-related issues, the Chairman PCB affirmed his commitment to prioritizing the team’s welfare.

Led by Babar Azam, the national team is set to commence their tours of Ireland and England on May 7 in preparation for the T20 World Cup, with the final 15-member squad announcement slated after the first match against England on May 22.

The series against Ireland is scheduled from May 10 to 14, followed by matches against England from May 22 to 30. The ninth edition of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, featuring 20 teams, will be hosted in the USA and West Indies from June 1 to 29.
