Nottinghamshire seamer Stuart Broad has retained his central contract for the 2021/22 season of international cricket.

The right-armer, who is England's second-most successful Test bowler of all-time, has received one of 20 annual contracts which were awarded on a 'single' contract basis for the upcoming 12 months, replacing the previous separation of red and white-ball contracts.

The 35-year-old has taken 524 wickets in 149 Test appearances, with a further 243 white-ball scalps for his country to his name.

Elsewhere, Somerset spinner Jack Leach, Yorkshire and Trent Rockets batsman Dawid Malan and Sussex seamer Ollie Robinson all receive central contracts for the first time.

Lancashire all-rounder Liam Livingstone is awarded an increment contract for the first time after his excellent campaign during the English summer, which included a record-breaking century at Trent Bridge against Pakistan.

Surrey's Tom Curran, meanwhile, returns to an increment contract having had a white-ball contract in 2020/21.

The contracts cover a 12-month period from 1 October 2021.
