Somerset batsman Nick Compton has earned an England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) increment contract after appearing in his fourth Test in India.
As a player who doesn't hold a central contract, Compton has earned an incremental deal by playing enough matches in a 12-month period under the ECB system.
Test match appearances are worth five points with limited overs internationals earning two points per appearance and players earn an increment contract when they reach 20 points in a 12-month period.

"This award reflects the contribution Nick has made to the England team during the early part of the winter programme and I would like to congratulate him on his achievements since making his international debut last month."
Compton made his debut in the first Test in Ahmedabad and scored a maiden half-century during England's seven-wicket victory in Kolkata that put them 2-1 up in the series.
