Joe Root cheer but Jonny Bairstow misses deal
10:27am Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Sport
Joe Root is the new name on the ECB’s central contract list after 11 players were handed 12-month deals yesterday, writes Graham Hardcastle.
Root and Yorkshire team-mate Tim Bresnan fly out to Australia today for the defence of the Ashes with their immediate future under control of the England management, but York-based Jonny Bairstow remains fully contracted to Yorkshire.
Root replaces Eoin Morgan from the most recent list, although the other ten names are the same.
Outgoing national selector Geoff Miller said: “Contracts are on-going recognition for those players who have regularly been selected and performed consistently.”
“Congratulations to Joe Root. This reflects the important role Joe has played for England since making his international debut last year, and will I’m sure continue to play across all formats.”
