The Pakistan Cricket Board on Saturday said it would continue to pay the salaries of around 220 professional players on its payroll at least until June 30.

The PCB said in a statement that it takes the welfare of its staff and cricketers "very seriously".

The board said it has around 220 professional cricketers on its payroll apart from staffers.

The PCB, though, also announced that due to prevailing situation in the country, the lucrative and popular T20 tournaments will not be held in the month of Ramazan this year.

The various T20 tournaments held in Ramazan, particularly in Karachi, are immensely popular and draw big crowds while offering lucrative prize money and financial incentives for the players.

"We have been approached by some organisers, seeking clarification on the PCB's NOC policy for Ramadan cricket.

"At this time it is appropriate we follow our overarching policy which states that organised cricket in Pakistan will remain suspended until normalcy returns to society. In this background, the PCB will not issue any NOCs for Ramazan cricket," the PCB said.
