After getting this draft approved by chairman PCB Ijaz Butt, names of 25 players would be asked from chairman selection committee Abdul Qadir for awarding them the central contracts
The chief operating officer PCB said that Mohammad Asif is suspendid due to Dubai and IPL doping cases and thus he is not allowed to play domestic cricket.
