England on Thursday announced that Ravi Bopara, Jos Buttler, Alex Hales, Eoin Morgan and Luke Wright had been handed incremental contracts, given their roles in the limited-overs squads.

None of the five players were part of the Ashes Test squad, but had been selected for the ODI series against Australia following the Ashes. Hales is currently the number one T20 batsman.

ECB National Selector Geoff Miller said: "These five players have played key roles in our limited overs sides in recent years and awarding them increment contracts means we expect them to be an important part of England's plans going forward.

"I would like to congratulate the players and wish them every success in an England shirt."
