There will not be a draft for the woman’s competition but the eight teams are set to announce key singings next week.
Speaking to City A.M. this month, The Hundred managing director Sanjay Patal said that it would be in future plans to have a women’s draft but the current climate of women’s cricket wouldn’t suit the system at the moment.
Rob Hillman, director of event operations said: “It’s fantastic to see so many of the world’s top players wanting to play in The Hundred.
“Despite the ongoing global challenges caused by the long-term impact of Covid-19 and the hectic international cricket calendar, the draft list guarantees The Hundred will be serving up some thrilling cricket this summer.”
