ESPNcricinfo staff

Pakistan's centrally contracted players will now get a 25% hike in their monthly retainers, the PCB announced on Wednesday. This is in addition to hikes of 25% in Test match fee and 10% for ODIs.

However, the board is yet to finalise the list of contracted players in all categories. The list will be released after the conclusion of the ongoing camp at the National Cricket Academy in Lahore. The revised salaries come into effect from January 1, 2014. The PCB will also release up to 50% of the players' remunerations for those who have represented Pakistan in international matches since January 2014.

The system of bonuses has also been revised to incentivise outstanding individual performances and series wins.
