Kent off-spinner James Tredwell has earned an England & Wales Cricket Board (ECB) increment contract for the 2013-14 season.

He has now played the requisite amount of games - in his case six One-Day Internationals and four Twenty20 Internationals.

He has recently played three ODIs apiece against Australia and the West Indies, one T20 game against Australia and three against the West Indies.

Non-contracted players are awarded an increment contract when they reach 20 points (Tests are worth five points and limited overs matches are worth two points) during the 12-month contract period.

Tredwell has now played one Test, 30 ODIs and 11 Twenty20 Internationals for his country and is battling with the likes of Scott Borthwick, Simon Kerrigan and Steve Parry to take over as England's number one spinner following the retirement of Graeme Swann.
