Top umpires still missing Kashmir Premier League dues

Top umpires still missing Kashmir Premier League dues, Many umpires and match referees who served in the Kashmir Premier League last year have not been paid their match fees to date.

All the officials in question are associated with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), which allows the organization of the regional T20 league, the second edition of which is scheduled to be held in June 2022.

Top Pakistani umpires including Aleem Dar and Ahsan Raza umpired during the tournament and with the third edition due later this year, many others, including both officials, are still awaiting their dues from last year.

A leading umpire affected by this situation claimed that his lower-ranking colleagues had collected his match fees.

The umpire said on condition of anonymity that the estimated dues are around Rs 30 lakh. “We are still in talks with the organizers but they keep asking us to wait for ‘some more time’,” he told Dawn.

The umpire asked the PCB to take up the matter with the KPL organizers before giving the green signal for the third edition.

A KPL spokesperson told “Dawn” that the payments were delayed because the league had suffered “huge losses” and several matches in the second edition were lost due to rain.

However, the spokesperson claimed that the dues would be paid “soon”.
