Jofra Archer has been handed a central contract.

The Sussex star's instrumental performances for England in the World Cup and Ashes have secured him Test and white-ball deals.

He was previously on an incremental deal.

News of the central contract is no surprise.

Sussex recently requested, unsuccessfully, permission to use him in the Vitality Blast quarter-final and the final Championship match of the season.

Archer followed up being England's leading wicket-taker in their triumphant World Cup campaign with 22 scalps at an average of 20.27 in four Tests against Australia, while he routinely touched speeds in the mid-90mph range in scintillating debut international summer.

He is one of ten players to receive a Test deal for the 2019-20 season, as is opener Rory Burns, who cemented his spot at the top of the order with some battling performances in the Ashes.
