Sydney – Fast bowler James Pattinson and opener Marcus Harris were among
Cricket Australia’s nationally contracted players announced on Monday, but
there was no room for Cameron Bancroft, Peter Siddle, or Marnus
The list of 20 men’s players offered deals for the 2019-2020 season
on the basis of their performances over the past 12 months also
included, as expected, Steve Smith and David Warner despite neither
padding up during the period.

They were omitted last year after being banned over the
ball-tampering scandal in South Africa. Bancroft, who was suspended for
nine months over the same incident, missed out.
“We believe the 2019-20 contract list provides us with a versatile
group of players who can represent Australia across all three formats
over the contract period,” said chief selector Trevor Hohns.
“Our key criteria focused on selecting a pool of players who are
going to help us in our ambition to win the upcoming World Cup and Ashes
series in England, and who can also play the various formats over the
course of the Australian summer.”
Others to be overlooked included Joe Burns and Kurtis Patterson. They, along with Labuschagne, recently played Test cricket.
Matt Renshaw, Kane Richardson, Billy Stanlake, Andrew Tye, Mitchell
Marsh and Ashton Agar, who previously had contracts, did not have them
Fast bowler Nathan Coulter-Nile, who wasn’t on the list last year,
made the grade, but Pattinson was the biggest surprise having battled
back from back surgery at the end of 2017.
The minimum value of a contract last season was Aus$286 000. This year’s figure was not released.
Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Alex Carey, Aaron
Finch, Usman Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Marcus Harris, Travis Head, Josh
Hazlewood, Nathan Lyon, Glenn Maxwell, Shaun Marsh, Tim Paine, James
Pattinson, Jhye Richardson, Steve Smith, Mitchell Starc, Marcus Stoinis,
David Warner, Adam Zampa
