In addition to central contracts, selectors can award a limited number of increment contracts. Surrey all-rounder Tom Curran is a recipient of an increment contract for the next 12 months.

Test specialists and those playing in all forms of the game will have their salaries paid in full by the ECB. Those on white-ball contracts will receive their supplement on top of their county salary.

Under the structure, players in both formats will receive a ‘ranking’ based on their performances on the pitch, as well as a number of other factors, including off-field contribution, fielding and fitness. Those rankings will then correlate with the level of remuneration.

The contracts, which cover a 12-month period commencing 1 October 2018, have been awarded to the following players.
