Anderson, Buttler awarded central contracts
The fast bowler receives a Test contract, with Buttler contracted for both Test and white ball cricket for the next 12 months
Lancashire stars James Anderson and Jos Buttler have been awarded ECB central contracts for the 2019/20 season.
Anderson is again handed a Test contract, with Buttler given a Test and limited-overs deal.
Test specialists and those playing in all forms of the game will have their salaries paid in full by the ECB. From 1 February 2020, the start of the ECB 2020 Financial Year, those on White Ball contracts will move from receiving a supplement on top of their County salary, to having their salaries paid in full by the ECB as per Test contracted players.
Under the structure, players in both formats receive a ‘ranking’ based on their performances on the pitch, as well as a number of other factors, including off-field contribution, fielding and fitness. Those rankings then correlate with the level of remuneration.
