Moeen Ali Awarded New Central Contract By Ecb

Moeen Ali has earned a new ECB central contract for Test and white ball cricket.

The Worcestershire all-rounder has earned the double deal for the past four years and has retained it for the next 12 months.

Moeen is one of 10 players awarded Test contracts and amongst the 13 handed white ball contracts.

He is one of seven players who have been been given the dual contract alongside Jos Buttler, Adil Rashid, Jonny Bairstow, Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Chris Woakes.

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.
