ENGLAND: Bairstow wins England Increment Contract

— 25 May 2012

The ECB today announced that Yorkshire wicketkeeper-batsman Jonny Bairstow has been awarded an England increment contract for 2011-12.

Bairstow qualified for the award by virtue of having played in the 1st Investec Test match v West Indies at Lord’s having previously played in five One-Day Internationals and four T20s since September 30, 2011.

Non-contracted players can earn an England increment contract via a points system. Five points are awarded for a Test appearance and two for a T20 or ODI appearance, with an increment contract being awarded automatically once the player reaches 20 points during the 12-month contract period.

ECB National Selector Geoff Miller said: “This award reflects the contribution Jonny has made both to the limited overs squads and more recently to the Test team and we congratulate him on his achievement.”
