PCB plans to gag players on social media
Pakistan Cricket Board is planning to completely gag players as it has devised a plan to control the social media activities of the centrally contracted players, reported 24NewsHD TV Channel Tuesday.
The PCB has decided to make changes in the social media policy for players in the central contracts in an effort to control those players who are quite active in social media.
It is, however, may be noted that the PCB’s media team is fully using players status for free by involving them in a lot of social media activities that has proved rather a distraction for the players during a series or event as well as abuse of their brand value.
According to sources, the PCB would limit the players’ activities on social media through new contracts. The players would be barred from giving any statement on social media regarding board policies and their own or team’s selection.
The players would not comment on social media during any tour or series regarding the team’s activities.
The PCB is still busy in further discussion on finalizing the central contract for the players and they would be offered the contract before the team’s departure to England.
