Topley earns England increment contract

Hampshire pace bowler Reece Topley has been awarded an England increment contract for 2015-16.

Topley qualifies for the award by virtue of playing four ODIs and a T20 against Pakistan and five ODIs against South Africa during the current contract period.

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.
