“PCB Offered Me a Post in NCA for 11 Lac a Month, I Told them I Earend 11 Lac a Week in USA. Give Me What they are Giving Mickey Arthur, 45 Lac a Month:” Mohammad Asif

Former Pakistan fast bowler Mohammad Asif, who was once known for his exceptional swing bowling skills, saw his international cricket career come to an end due to his involvement in the 2010 spot-fixing scandal. Recently, Asif disclosed details of an offer made to him by the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) to work at the National Cricket Academy (NCA). He revealed that while the PCB’s offer was generous, it fell far short of the income he was earning abroad.

Asif stated, “The PCB offered me a position at the National Cricket Academy with a monthly salary of 11 lakh rupees. I told them that I earn 11 lakh rupees per week in the USA.” This highlighted the significant income disparity between the offer from the PCB and what he was making overseas.

To emphasize his point further, Asif mentioned that he had requested the PCB to match the salary they were paying to the former Pakistan coach, Mickey Arthur. Asif estimated Arthur’s monthly salary to be around 45 lakh rupees and demanded, “Give me a salary equivalent to what they are paying Mickey Arthur.”

In essence, Mohammad Asif revealed that while he was offered a role at the National Cricket Academy by the PCB, the financial package was far less than what he believed he could earn overseas and significantly lower than what was being paid to the former Pakistan coach.
