Agree. Cheap, nasty & unnecessary. Git.

Just announced Chris has been awarded a central contract

Totally deserved, good to see that Ian Bell and Moeen are included in the group as well
While Robert may be bad, Robert is not all Mugabe's.
There are GOOD Mugabe's
It is Warwickshire County Cricket Club!

Ian was obvious but for Chris and Moeen its their first one. Does it save both clubs money?

Yes, the ecb becomes the players employer, and the ecb contract takes over their employment costs, plus I believe there is a compensatory payment to the clubs.
There is a 'shadow' contract between the player and club, which covers the players appearances with the county, and gives the player 'continuity of employment', to cover medical and pension requirements.

So its all good except we wont see much of Chris next season.

Sadly that is true, but we should be pleased that he is considered to be a key part of the England team.

Woakes replaced Trott really. So doesn't really save us.

On the other hand Trotty has now lost his central contract so we are responsible for his wages...

Yes deserved a lot more credit from the sky commentators. I liked the ball which hit Mendis on the head via a top edge. It Shows he now has the pace to scare batsman, something which Trescothick once said he couldn't do.

And he now has 2 of the top 3 best figures by England players in ODIs. He's also the first England player to take two 6 wicket hauls in ODIs. Great stuff.

I also liked the fact that he had enough confidence to review the decision immediately - no conferring with the captain or the wicketkeeper.  Mind you, if he'd got it wrong, he wouldn't have been popular.
