The ECB today announced that Surrey pace bowler Jade Dernbach and Somerset wicketkeeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter have both been awarded England increment contracts for 2010-11.

Both players qualify for the award by virtue of having played in two Twenty20 internationals and seven one-day internationals for England during this summer’s domestic international season.

Non-contracted players can earn an England increment contract via a points system. Five points are awarded for a Test appearance and two for a T20 or ODI appearance, with an increment contract being awarded automatically once the player reaches 20 points during the 12-month contract period.

ECB national selector Geoff Miller said: “This award reflects the contributions Craig and Jade have made to our T20 and one-day international teams this season and we congratulate both players on their achievement.”
