Can't help but feel a bit sorry for Mark Wood when it comes to red ball cricket. He will definitely be needed during the next Ashes tour.

Yes, that was the one which raised my eyebrows but maybe its just a fitness/money concern?

Good to see Bess & Jordan rewarded with incremental contracts.

Archers should be incremental to how fast he bowls in a test match!

Directly inverse to how much he adapts his bowling to the pitch and/or situation.

4 tests in 2 years doesnt really warrant one. Would be a waste of a spot for someone more deserving and with a better fitness record.

Any of the bowlers who have been picked instead.

It wasn't a criticism, was just interested in opinions  :)

I would rather see Wood on an incremental contract than Chris Jordan but it's just an opinion.

You are right about the fitness concerns. I just think Wood is a bit unlucky.

Yeh I never read it as criticism. What's the difference between incremental and a white ball one?  What is the reason behind an incremental contract?

Maybe they should all be performance based.

Archer currently has a significantly better record than Broad or Anderson did after the same amount of Test Matches.

The thing that stood out for me was that all our Spinners are on Incremental contracts, that really is a sign of the times.

Billings not getting any sort of contract at all is a shame & Malan getting an incremental one is a shame too.

Two of our stronger performers this summer in white ball cricket, but clearly not concrete in the plans for the near future.

Totally agree especially on Malan who has a superb T20 international record and I believe currently the worlds best t20 international batsmen based on rankings.
Billings has had a great summer and fingers crossed he can keep his place over the winter in whatever white ball cricket we play and keep his form going. Also a gun fielder and very very good keeper
