and live on Freeview channel 276
Both have been plagued by injury problems – Archer particularly so – but England have kept faith with both as they announce their first multi-year contracts, which are being regarded as a way to ward off interest in players from franchise leagues.
Robinson started 2023 in the England side for the Ashes but he lost his place after failing to make a big impact in the early part of the series, which ended 2-2.
Here’s the full list of which players have been given which deals…
Three-year contracts: Harry Brook, Joe Root, Mark Wood
Two-year contracts: Rehan Ahmed, Jofra Archer, Gus Atkinson, Jonny Bairstow, Jos Buttler, Brydon Carse, Zak Crawley, Sam Curran, Ben Duckett, Liam Livingstone, Ollie Pope, Matthew Potts, Adil Rashid, Josh Tongue, Chris Woakes
One-year contracts: Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Ben Foakes, Jack Leach, Dawid Malan, Ollie Robinson, Ben Stokes, Reece Topley
Development contracts: Matthew Fisher, Saqib Mahmood, John Turner
