The story of Pakistani player Fazal Subhan driving a mini truck to earn has recently surfaced the internet and shocked many.
A journalist shared the struggle story of this young cricketer after PCB brought new policy into the act.
The story of this 31-year-old player got viral on social media. He claims that he is not the only one, this is happening with several other players who struggle to make ends meet.
cricketer Mohammad Hafeez slammed the national cricket board for the new model and showed his support towards Fazal Subhan:
“I worked so hard to play for Pakistan. During departmental cricket, we were drawing a salary of Rs 100,000 but since the departments have shut down we are down to Rs 30,000-35,000, which is not enough to survive. I am grateful that at least I have this job right now because of the way things are, who knows if I would even have this tomorrow. We have no choice; we have to do something for our children,” the player said in his video.

closing departmental cricket without providing alternative for the grass root cricketers not a good idea. Talented players from poor families won’t have future in the cricket anymore
