...and a re-structuring of the system. Performance related payments!!

As expected JB gets one. Rashid, Plunkett & Willey just have white-ball ones. GB has an incremental.

Only Moeen, Root, Stokes and Woakes have a contract for all formats. Bairstow has a test contact only - slightly surprising?

Interesting that there is now performance based pay, with elements for off field activities.

so do you think that jb will be released for Yorkshire one day games and 20-20 don't thinks do you? do you think James Anderson is injured or just doesn't want to go .

"Tactical" injury for Anderson, saving him for India? It's possible but why not just leave him out anyway? We can be sure Wood's injury is genuine anyway, his ankle must be becoming a real concern.

Agree, if tactical then why not just leave Anderson out. Completely justifiable to argue for his workload to be managed etc.

Of course it is the same injury that caused him to be left out when he declared himself fit. Maybe the selectors did know best.

More generally, I think the central contracts are pretty much what you would expect. Finn continues to be the go to bowler (replacing Wood in the ODI squad) - hope he justifies it.

Having seen Toby R-J in action last week, I reckon he wouldn't have been a bad bet for India and Bangladesh.

Roland-Jones is indeed unlucky, but Ball's late season form justifies his selection.

Anderson hasn't recovered from injury, it's that simple isn't it?

Still, nothing like a good old ECB conspiracy theory.

Won't Finn be too tired after playing in the Middlesex vs Yorkshire match?

He did bowl a very long spell in that second innings. Must be shattered
