Sussex seamer Ollie Robinson, Somerset spinner Jack Leach and Yorkshire batsman Dawid Malan have been awarded England Central Contracts for the first time in a revamped structure for 2021-22.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) has ditched its previous strategy of awarding separate red ball and white ball deals and replaced it with a one-size-fits-all system.

The new structure is, according to the ECB, “designed to meet England’s future needs in what has become a fluid and dynamic landscape” due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The system considers the likelihood of players featuring in England teams across formats in the next 12 months, whilst also recognising performances in the preceding year.

Lancashire all-rounder Liam Livingstone is awarded an increment contract for the first time after his excellent campaign during the English summer. Surrey’s Tom Curran returns to an increment contract having had a white-ball contract in 2020/21.

Managing Director of Men’s England Cricket, Ashley Giles, said he believes the new system is “the fairest and most transparent way of rewarding players across all formats”.

He added: “I would like to congratulate all the players offered agreements for the coming year, particularly newcomers Jack Leach, Dawid Malan, and Ollie Robinson. Receiving your first central contract is a great moment in any player’s career. They will all play a pivotal role in England’s fortunes over the next 12 months.”
