Styris in Northern Districts' final contracts list

ESPNcricinfo staff

New Zealand's six major associations have completed their contracting process for the 2013-14 season, handing out 14 contracts each. The associations had already handed out 11 to 13 contracts each on July 26.

Former New Zealand captain Daniel Vettori, who turned down a national contract due to uncertainty over his recovery from surgery on his Achilles tendon, has not been included in the list for Northern Knights.

Allrounder Jacob Oram will also be without any contract this season. Oram had given up his national contract in December last year, after reaching an agreement with New Zealand Cricket. He had said he could no longer make "a full-time commitment to NZC" due to various factors including his age and the then impending birth of his second child, but would continue playing Twenty20 cricket for Central Districts and in various competitions around the world.

Veteran allrounder Scott Styris was among those to benefit from the final round of contracting, being added to Northern Districts' squad.

The contracts come into effect on October 1, 2013.
