Tredwell qualifies for the award by virtue of playing three one-day internationals and a Twenty20 against Australia and three ODIs and three T20s against West Indies during the current contract period.

Non-contracted players can earn an England increment contract via a points system. Five points are awarded for a Test appearance and two for a T20 or ODI appearance, with an increment contract being awarded automatically once the player reaches 20 points during the 12-month contract period.
