England director of cricket Ashley Giles is aware of the need to redress the balance between the red-ball and white-ball teams.

Trevor Bayliss ended four years in charge as head coach earlier this month and while he led the team to a maiden World Cup 50-over win, the Test side has lacked consistency.

Joe Root’s men fought back to draw 2-2 in the Ashes series, but the urn remains in the hands of Australia after their 4-0 home win during the 2017-18 series.

“The way the central contracts are lined up, with 10 Test contracts and 12 white-ball, does not mean white-ball is more important,” Giles said.

“But there is more room for manoeuvre in red-ball contracts and places up for grabs, so good opportunities for people and a chance for them to take them.”

Surrey seamer Liam Plunkett misses out on a white-ball contract despite a prominent role in the World Cup, where he took 11 wickets at 24.72, with England winning all seven matches when the 34-year-old was part of the side.
