LANCASHIRE'S JOS BUTTLER and four other players have been awarded increment contracts by the ECB for 2013-14.
He joins Ravi Bopara, Alex Hales, Luke Wright and Eoin Morgan, who were recently named in England’s limited overs squads to face Australia next month. All five are in the T20 squad and Buttler, Bopara and Morgan are also selected for the ODI series.
ECB National Selector Geoff Miller said: “These five players have played key roles in our limited overs sides in recent years and awarding them increment contracts means we expect them to be an important part of England’s plans going forward. I would like to congratulate the players and wish them every success in an England shirt.”
