The Pakistan Junior League (PJL) was discontinued by the PCB Management Committee, which shocked the cricket community given the enormous financial costs the enterprise incurred.

The first season of the PJL, the pet project of former PCB Chairman Ramiz Raja, was staged in October of last year at a cost of PKR 1 billion, of which PKR 440 million was reported as match costs for players and personnel.

Pakistan Junior League Players Never Got Paid?

Raja attacked the PCB after hearing the news and referred to it as “vendetta politics.”

He stated on Twitter, “It is so sad that PJL has fallen to vendetta politics and rolled back even though 7 of the kids made it to PSL 8 emerging category and 3 are part of Pak vs NZ as reserves”.

One person responded to Raja’s post by asking Raja about the high player pay in the Pakistan Junior league. He commented, “it was a great idea, but do you not think paying $22,000 to u19 kids is too much? I think PJL should still be played, but we can manage the costs better.”

Gwadar Sharks skipper Shamyl Hussain responded to the remark by admitting that the players were never compensated.“We never got paid haroon bhai”, he replied with laughing emoticons.

The PCB will revive the Pakistan junior league on a home-and-away schedule in order to provide a route for high-achieving youngsters after opting to cancel the PJL. Additionally, they will request that PSL teams include a U-19 player in their Emerging Player Category starting XIs.

Raja has gotten into trouble since stepping down as PCB chief and claims he wasn’t permitted to remove his items from the workplace. In addition, he described his departure as “political victimization,” and the PCB then threatened to sue.
