Jos Buttler's continued presence in England's Twenty20 side has been rewarded with an ECB incremental contract. Buttler qualifies having played nine T20s and an ODI in 2011-12.

Buttler made his England debut against India at Old Trafford in August 2011 before playing both T20s against West Indies at the end of the season, his first innings coming in the second match at The Oval. He has since been a consistent selection but it took until his 11th innings for him to make double figures with 32 from just 10 balls against South Africa at Edgbaston.

"This award reflects the contribution Jos has made this year in the shorter formats of the game for England and we congratulate him on his achievement," National selector Geoff Miller said.

Incremental contracts are awarded to non-central contracted players on a points system: five earned for a Test appearance and two for an ODI or T20. Contracts are awarded automatically once a player has earned 20 points in during the 12 month contract period.
