England's centrally-contracted men's cricketers have agreed to a 15 per cent pay-cut over the next twelve months.

England's centrally-contracted men's cricketers have agreed to a 15 percent reduction in remuneration over the next 12 months, owing to the financial implications due to COVID-19 pandemic.

The England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) reached an agreement with the Team England Player Partnership (TEPP) over the development.

In a statement on the board's official website, ECB's Managing Director Ashley Giles thanked the players and TEPP for their collaboration in reaching the agreement.

"I would like to thank the players and TEPP for their collaboration, which has enabled us to reach this agreement," Giles said. 

"The relationship with our men's players and their representatives (TEPP) is strong, and we need to recognise that our players, led by captains Joe Root and Eoin Morgan, have conducted themselves with great maturity and responsibility throughout this challenging time."

The chairman of TEPP Richard Bevan said, "These are unprecedented times and once again the players have shown that they fully appreciate the important role they play in helping cricket emerge from this pandemic in as strong a position as possible.

"In agreeing to this revised remuneration package, they have shown great responsibility and unity with the wider game."
