Spinner James Tredwell is handed an increment contract by the England and Wales Cricket Board.

Kent spinner James Tredwell has been handed an increment contract by the England and Wales Cricket Board for the 2013-14 season.

The 32-year-old reached the required number of games for England to earn the deal after appearing in six one-day internationals and four Twenty20 matches.

Non-contracted players earn England increment contracts via a points system, with five points being awarded for a Test appearance and two for a T20 or ODI appearance.

Tredwell, who has made just one appearance in Test cricket, has taken 44 wickets at international level and is expected to play a key role in the World Twenty20.

England start their tournament against New Zealand on Saturday.
