Batsman James Taylor has been given an England increment contract following his impressive performances as of late.
Taylor is currently averaging 44.10 in the 12 ODIs he has played and narrowly missed out on his maiden ODI century during England’s 111-run loss to Australia on the opening day of the World Cup.
Taylor earned the contract under the England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB) points system, where an increment contract is given to a player once he reaches 20 points over a 12-month period.
Under the points system, five points are awarded for a Test appearance and two for an ODI or Twenty20 International appearance.
