London: Jade Dernbach, Craig Kieswetter and Ravi Bopara have been given 12-month contracts by England after playing key roles in one-day series victories against India and Sri Lanka this summer.

The England and Wales Cricket Board named South Africa-born Dernbach on Friday after he established himself as a permanent fixture in England's limited-overs teams.

Kieswetter, a wicketkeeper-batsman, has combined well with Alastair Cook at the top of the order while Bopara made important contributions with the bat in the 3-0 series win over India, hitting 96 in the tied match at Lord's.

Kieswetter is among three players to be given a 12-month contract by England.

Rather than 12-month central contracts, the trio have been given increment contracts, which involve playing a set number of matches during a given period.
