Jonny Bairstow has lost his England Test contract and Mark Wood has also missed out, but Zak Crawley, Ollie Pope and Dom Sibley have all been handed central deals.

Bairstow had a red-ball contract for the 2019-20 season despite struggling for form.

But after featuring just once for the Test team in the past year - scoring only 10 runs in the Boxing Day Test in South Africa - the Yorkshire star has not seen his deal renewed.

  How Does Our 'World-Beating' Test And Trace System Compare To Other Countries? “We have growing confidence that we will have a test, track and trace operation that will be world-beating and yes, it will be in place by June 1.” These were the words of Boris Johnson, during PMQ’s on May 20 this year. Four months have passed since the PM’s bold statement. Since then, more than 6,000 people across the country have died after testing positive for Covid-19 – taking the total death toll to more than 40,000.

Jonny Bairstow will be the biggest loser when England 's central contracts for 2020-21 are announced on Wednesday. The 31-year-old was among the 10 players to receive a Test contract 12 months ago

Bairstow will instead have only a white-ball contract, as will fast bowler Wood.

The Durham seamer has played three times for the red-ball team this year, impressing in the tour of South Africa, where he took nine wickets in Johannesburg.

But Wood fell down the pecking order as England returned home, with James Anderson, Stuart Broad, Jofra Archer, Sam Curran and Chris Woakes often preferred.

By contrast, there was good news for Crawley, Pope and Sibley, who have established themselves in Joe Root's Test squad.

Crawley has steadily improved since his November 2019 debut, smashing 267 in his first innings against Pakistan last month.

Pope has been a regular this year, too, and had an unbeaten century in South Africa, while Sibley's steady work has bolstered a previously flimsy top order.

Meanwhile, Tom Curran had an increment contract for the previous campaign but now has a white-ball deal. Joe Denly has missed out altogether.
