Shakib has not been handed central contract, for he is out of cricket at the moment due to a suspension slapped on him by the International Cricket Council (ICC). On the other hand, the board decided to not include Mashrafe as he pulled himself out of the new players’ contract.

In absence of Shakib and Mashrafe, the wicketkeeper-batsman Mushfiqur Rahim is going to be the highest paid cricketer among the new centrally contracted players.

It has been learnt that the list of the players of the new central contract for the 2020-2021 season will be announced in the aftermath of the first Test against Pakistan, which is scheduled from February 7 to 11 in Rawalpindi.

BCB director and its Cricket Operations Committee chairman Akram Khan informed that the list has been almost finalised, and it might include 14 to 16 players.

“The final list of the centrally contracted players might be declared within the next one week. There could be 14-16 players in the new contract,” he said.

“The payment of players in the new central contract has increased. Those who have remained in all three formats will enjoy an additional payment in this contract,” he also added.
