    Terrible way to do the contracts. The Test players should get the most money. Not the silly ****ers who only play hit and giggle cricket and get big money in the BPL as well.

    I don't understand how people like Afridi and Umar Akmal get better contracts than people like Azhar Ali. What have they done to deserve it?

    ^ Fully agree... Tests should be rewarded the most. You'd think they would've learnt that by now esp. after their recent strong performance against England. Afridi is a spent force and a nothing player, even in ODIs. All he can do is bowl a bit and do that silly pose of his.

    Actually, given their state of economy, it's less even for them and even lesser when you compare what their next-door neighbours (India) get in Category A contracts (100s of lakhs in Indian rupees)... an order of magnitude in the difference.

    ^ For a series... not bad actually. That's a month pay for them. People in Pakistan don't earn that much in 2 years. Obviously if its converted to dollars, it is obviously going to look ****.

    That's about 150 times less than what the English and Australian's get (they get paid the most FTR)
