Cricket Australia (CA) has revealed a full-time list of its players who will be offered national contracts for 2022-23.

Among the 15 women cricketers, leg-spinner Alana King has been handed a national contract for the first time, with the selectors making just one change in the list following Australia’s unbeaten run in the recently concluded World Cup.

Meanwhile, left-arm spinner Sophie Molineux has been dropped from the contract list following her injury-plagued 12 months. Though, Molineux’s state teammates Georgia Wareham and Tayla Vlaeminck have been retained despite also being on the long-term injury list.

Cricket Australia women’s contract list for 2022-23: Meg Lanning, Darcie Brown, Nicola Carey, Ashleigh Gardner, Rachael Haynes, Alyssa Healy, Jess Jonassen, Alana King, Tahlia McGrath, Beth Mooney, Ellyse Perry, Megan Schutt, Annabel Sutherland, Tayla Vlaeminck, Georgia Wareham.

In the list of 20 players for the men’s national team, wicketkeeper-batsman Josh Inglis has earned his full-year contract for the first time. Inglis, who made his international debut in February this year, shined with the willow in his maiden series, scoring 155 runs in five T20I games against Sri Lanka at a strike rate of 143.52.

Last year, CA had handed contracts to only 17 men, of which Mitch Marsh, Mitchell Swepson, Scott Boland, Travis Head, Marcus Stoinis and Usman Khawaja have retained full-time contracts after their upgradation in 2021-22.

Cricket Australia men’s contract list for 2022-23: Aaron Finch, Ashton Agar, Scott Boland, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Cameron Green, Josh Hazlewood, Travis Head, Josh Inglis, Usman Khawaja, Marnus Labuschagne, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Glenn Maxwell, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis, Mitchell Swepson, David Warner, Adam Zampa.
