The 5th fast bowler has been Plunkett and he hasn't done anything so I can't see a change there.

Maybe the central contracts will change. Before it was Test players playing both one day cricket and Tests. Maybe there will be a pool of 20/25 players for the first time. It's never been more than 13 for central contracts.

Rather surprised the ECB have sufficient confidence in Finn to award him a full central contract.

Morgan's too takes a little fathoming.

I suppose as he is the limited overs captain they can't not give him one.

If you value those forms of the game highly enough then it's reasonable, isn't it? He's not a whelk's chance in a supernova of getting another test but he doesn't need to be. Think Finn is fair enough too: he's played a fair few of our recent ODIs (when fit, anyway) and is probably our best bowler in the format (which may not be saying much in international terms but still suggests he'll be a fixture for England) plus he's recovered his test place.

Morgan's going to need a central contract so he doesn't have to tire himself out playing county cricket.

Apparently Morgan's central contract underlines the importance one-day cricket now plays in England's plans under Strauss's direction. So far just the captain, but could one-day specialists eventually be centrally contracted? And does Morgan's contract have any bearing on him playing in the IPL etc?

Middlesex will be relieved.

I guess looking at those contacts it's probable that all have a shot of playing test and one day formats, Morgan aside, whereas that can't be said for Willey.

Yet to get 20 points for an incremental contract

Billings - 5 ODIs 2 20/20s - 14 points
Willey - 6 ODIs 2 20/20s - 16 points

Surprised that Roy didn't get one
Roy - 11 ODIs 2 20/20s - 26 points

This is apparently the salaries of England players. A basic of 650k pa.

I can't believe that at all. A player like Jordan who has played 9 Tests would get the same as Cook 122 or Bell 118 Tests.

That's just the basic salary though like you I'm sceptical that it is the reality. As you may note, Cook gets a captaincy bonus but that is not stated in those figures. I'd heard it was worth about 400k more.

A few years ago we had categories

A+ - Senior players playing Tests and ODIs
A - Senior players in either form of the game
B - Inexperienced players

Look at India

Grade A (Rs 1 crore):
Grade B (Rs 50 lakh):
Grade C (Rs 25 lakh):

Pakistan have 4 categories and bonuses for 100s and 5fers.

Cricinfo - Dobell - 13 Jan

'While the value of ECB central contracts - more than 300,000 a year before match fees' ...

Bit different from the 700,000. Doubt if Cook would be getting 400,000 for captaincy. Maybe 40,000.

Just found this
CA
Under the agreement, the minimum value of a CA contract for the 2014-15 season is $250,000 while any player awarded an ‘upgrade’ contract will earn a minimum of $210,000.

That's 120,254

I think Bairstow might be added. How has he done in that period?

Also did Wood not have one? He's just the type of player they were designed for so they could be wrapped in cotton wool.

Central contracts Oct - June

846 at 52.87 - Cook
760 at 47.50 - Root
511 at 36.50 - Stokes - 18 wickets at 31.83
389 at 29.92 - Ali - 21 wickets at 52.52
158 at 31.60 - Bell
34 at 8.50 - Buttler
41 wickets at 17.82 - Anderson
37 wickets at 23.16 - Broad
18 wickets at 26.88 - Finn
6 wickets at 28.33 - Wood

(Bairstow 880 at 62.85) likely to get Buttler's central contract

You would think Topley is suited to ODIs and not 20/20s and vice versa for Willey. England say they are missing Stokes in white ball cricket but really they would get more runs and wickets from Plunkett.

I think we'll see a lot more from Stokes as an ODI cricketer, although he's certainly disappointed so far. Certainly I think it's a bit silly to suggest we'd get more runs from Plunkett, who's a good lower order slogger rather than a real batsman.
