Well said Martyn. Seems to me that the compensation clubs receive should be the equivalent of an England salary. In this way there is proper compensation for developmental costs etc and gives the county the means to sign a quality replacement.

Some interesting stuff in there, including a few things we didn't know.

It sounds as if the club technically could have refused the ECB's request and picked Bairstow, but as Moxon said that would have been a big call, and as discussed may have had consequences for Jonny (which I'm sure is the last thing anyone would want).

I'm shocked that the compensation given to counties when their players are absent on England duty doesn't even cover the player's salary (which the county still has to pay); that really does punish counties for producing England players, both in a sporting and financial sense! Disgraceful considering that the ECB have something like £40M in cash reserves- that must surely change.

Simple solution is for contracts to be upgraded at any point rather than wait every September, even if it is on a pro-rata basis. Bairstow effectively cemented his England place after a successful winter in South Africa, at that point his contract should have been upgraded.

Although freeing up a salary in February may not have guaranteed a signing when player business is normally done in the Autumn, but it might have allowed Yorkshire to sign a squad player on a summer contract.

Agree JG, especially with your last para. I think the "Press" article has blown away the "myth" that we get adequately compensated for our England players being missing. It is clear from the article we do not.

Teams that provide more than a "fair share" of contracted players should be given additional compensation.

Eg...any team can be expected to lose one player to the ECB...provided the team are fully compensated in terms of salary etc

Above one contracted player the amount of compensation increases pro rata on the number of players, OR teams are awarded Championship points each time a player is unavailable owing to ECB contracts

I like the last para. We would have the title in the bag before the end of May!

This is a very good article and interview.
It shows our management have a good mix of balls to stand up and be heard, and at the same time common sense not to burn bridges. Dizzy's interview on the morning of the current match showed the same balance. Impressed.
Thanks for posting.

I am surprised that the compensation we receive doesn't cover Jonny Bairstows salary, I was under the impression it covered and then some.
Even more a kick in the teeth them asking Yorkshire to rest such a player for such a big game.

they could have been no repurcussions on jonny had yccc insisted he played.

he is after all on our payroll and would be contractually obliged to play for the club that is paying his salary.
