Woakes awarded England increment contract

The ECB today announced that Warwickshire all-rounder Chris Woakes has been awarded an England increment contract for 2012-13.  

Woakes qualifies for the award by virtue of having played two ODIs against India, five ODIs against New Zealand, a T20 against New Zealand and a Test against Australia during the 12 month 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.

ECB National Selector Geoff Miller said: "This award reflects the contribution Chris has made this year in all formats of the game for England and we congratulate him on his achievement."
