The Pakistan Cricket Board has given its players a 25 per cent pay rise, taking a top-category contract to around US$4500 (NZ$5200) a month.
The PCB also said in a statement on Wednesday that fees for test matches would be increased by 25 per cent and one-day internationals by 10 per cent.
The list of players to be given new central contracts would be finalised after a training camp ended in Lahore next month.
Category B contracts would be worth US$3150 (NZ$3160) a month, with category C players earning US$1800 (NZ$2100).
The PCB said it consulted senior players before deciding the new salary structure, which was effective from January 1, 2014.
