England Cricket Board (ECB) has released the list of their contracted players. The two major changes in the list are Liam Livingstone and Ben Foakes getting a promotion, and now they are on the list of fully contracted players. Other changes include six increments. whereas, six players have been handed a pace bowling development contract. Jofra Archer has retained his place even after being injured for most of the time.

Liam Livingstone who has had a dream year has got a well-deserved promotion. The spin all-rounder has performed exceptionally well for England.

Jason Roy who has been the opener of the England team for some time now has been moved to the increment list. This may be due to his inconsistent performance in recent matches. One more name who has been added this year to the fully contracted list is Zak Crawley, but his fellow opener Alex Lees has missed out on the list.

“I feel we have rewarded those players who have made a significant impact over the previous 12 months and those we expect to be part of England’s plans over the next period,” Managing Director of England Men’s Cricket, Rob Key, said.

“The international game continues to evolve, and we must be mindful that we have to lead the way in player performance across the sport. The aim is to develop world-class players in all three formats as we strive to become the best team in the world,” Rob added.
