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

I'm not sure Malan was culled too quick from the test team - partnership breaking spin bowling too - however, probably no space for him in the top 6 now

Wow, nothing for Foakes either.  I am hoping all of this has to do with the short cricket season.

Not sure you can really give a test contract to someone who isnt played for 2 years tbh.

If you look at it from the perspective of change then below are the contracts awarded last year -

Test Match

James Anderson (Lancashire), Jofra Archer (Sussex), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire), Stuart Broad (Nottinghamshire), Rory Burns (Surrey), Jos Buttler (Lancashire), Sam Curran (Surrey), Joe Root (Yorkshire), Ben Stokes (Durham), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire).

ODI / T20

Moeen Ali (Worcestershire), Jofra Archer (Sussex), Jonny Bairstow (Yorkshire), Jos Buttler (Lancashire), Joe Denly (Kent), Eoin Morgan (Middlesex), Adil Rashid (Yorkshire), Joe Root (Yorkshire), Jason Roy (Surrey), Ben Stokes (Durham), Chris Woakes (Warwickshire), Mark Wood (Durham).

Incremental

Tom Curran (Surrey), Jack Leach (Somerset)

So Foakes didn't have one and hasn't played.
Malan has mainly played T20 regularly so was only really going to get an incremental.
Wood had a White ball before so why increase it when he isn't really going to play more games as they manage him.
Curran moves into Denly's spot
Billings is probably unlucky not to get an incremental contract TBH
Crawley, Pope and Sibley all get Test contracts for the first time as they are the future. Plus Bairstow losing his frees up a contract.
Bess getting an incremental due to him being our 1st choice spinner all summer but not a Test contract because he's not the finished article yet.

I was thinking more in terms of the incremental contract as backup keeper.  I guess the current backup keeper is Pope.

Hes got a white ball contract, which is more 💰than an incremental one.

Foakes is still second-choce keeper, central contract or no.

I think he has been typecast as a batsman for hard pitches and short pitched bowling.  Could he have filled the same role as Joe Denly?  Certainly.  Will he make the squad for the next Ashes? I'd say if he had a decent season thats a probably too.
