England Contract Shenanigans
« on: October 24, 2023, 12:05:55 PM »

The much-trailed England multi-year contracts are out and there's some rogue goings on. Stokes has only signed for a year, Mark Wood got 3 years (clearly some strong negotiation), no deal for Jacks. Looks like Willey could be out in the cold after the WC, and Fisher/Turner appear to have leapfrogged the Overtons and Stone. Apparently noone turned a contract down.

Three-year contracts: Harry Brook, Joe Root, Mark Wood

Two-year contracts: Rehan Ahmed, Jofra Archer, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Brydon Carse, Zak Crawley, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Liam Livingstone, Ollie Pope, Matthew Potts, Adil Rashid, Josh Tongue, Chris Woakes

One-year contracts: Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Ben Foakes, Jack Leach, Dawid Malan, Ollie Robinson, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley

Development contract: Matthew Fisher, Saqib Mahmood, John Turner

Wood is never making it another 3 years at his pace unless he is put in some Micheal Jackson type oxygen chamber between games.

Rumour is in fact Stokes has turned down a contract which would explain why it is just 1 year.

New TV deals are in the future interesting Stokes is the only one turning down a 3 year deal thou.

Archer probably if he gets on the field again is short form only.
I do think if you have someone of that pace bowling the donkey overs in Tests then you have handled it wrong. He may of got injured anyway but England did him no favours.

It is poor handling end of the day in my opinion

Isnt the England Test captaincy on a rolling 1 year contract hence his 1 year contract? If not no idea why only a year

Stokes wants to re negotiate after the new TV rights have been announced

1 year until then

Basically, wanting more money this time next year

Who can blame him?

Root and brook surprised me

They still have massive bargaining power but maybe they got money too good to refuse ?

Seems odd they have offered contracts to all the pensioners in engs odi team who are about to retire.

Jacks not getting a contract is also mad. He will play more cricket for England than loads of the names on that list.

Guessing they thought we'd challenge for this WC and then go challenge for the T20 next summer. Imagine there may be a handful who don't make it to that tournament now!

Agree. Offering two year deals to Chris Woakes- is that out of some kind of misguided loyalty?

Chris Woakes was named the player of the series in an Ashes summer only two months ago so has a fairly decent case to be part of England's immediate plans without Stuart Broad

How much more are they expecting to develop Saqib Mahmood?? They should have invested in some other young talent which can be developed.
