Jos Buttler: Made ninth T20 appearance for England against Afghanistan

The England and Wales Cricket Board have awarded Somerset's Jos Buttler an England incremental contract for the remainder of the 2011-2012 season.

The wicketkeeper-batsman qualifies for the contract after playing nine Twenty20's and one 50-over international in the contract year.

Friday's World T20 opener against Afghanistan was the last of those games, with the appearance taking him to the 20 points needed for an award.

"This award reflects the contribution Jos has made this year in the shorter formats of the game for England and we congratulate him on his achievement," said national selector Geoff Miller.

Non-contracted players are awarded five points for a Test appearance and two for a limited-overs one.
