Dernbach, Kieswetter win England Increment Contracts
London: Surrey pace bowler Jade Dernbach and Somerset wicketkeeper-batsman Craig Kieswetter have been awarded England increment contracts for 2010-11, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced on Wednesday.
Both the players have qualified 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.
"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," ECB National Selector Geoff Miller said.
Dernbach has picked up 12 wickets in eight ODI at an average of 30.91 and five wickets in two T20s in his short career, while Kieswetter has scored 590 runs from 20 ODIs at an average of 31.05 and 266 runs from eleven T20 Internationals at an average of 24.18.
