A 15-year-old batter, who is a member of the ACE elite programme, Davina Perrin is set to become the youngest player to be featured in The Hundred competition this summer. Birmingham Phoenix has signed her for the competition.  

For the unversed, Perrin represented the Central Sparks team that played the final of the Charlotte Edwards Cup this year. Besides, she was involved in Ebony Rainford-Brent’s ACE (African Caribbean Engagement) programme since its roll-out in the West Midlands.

“It’s a dream come true to have signed for Birmingham Phoenix this summer,” Perrin said. “To have the opportunity to train and potentially play alongside the likes of Ellyse Perry, Sophie Devine and Amy Jones is amazing and I can’t wait to get going.”

The 15-year-old batter was confirmed as one of the notable signings for the team. Mahika Gaur, a 16-year-old seamer who has represented the UAE in 14 T20Is, has signed for Manchester Originals, while Natasha Wraith, Nancy Harman and Grace Ballinger will all join Perrin at Phoenix.

Besides, Beth Harmer and Rachel Slater will be playing for Northern Superchargers, while Oval Invincibles have roped in Ryana MacDonald-Gay and Kirstie White

“Today is a really exciting moment as we confirm the squads for the second year of the Hundred,” Sanjay Patel, the tournament’s managing director, said. “It’s great to see players like Richard Gleeson and George Scrimshaw being rewarded for impressive performances in the Vitality Blast, while we’ve got some exciting youngsters joining the women’s competition with the likes of Davina Perrin and Mahika Gaur being signed up.”

The Men’s Hundred competition is slated to start on 3rd August. The opening game of the competition sees Southern Brave take on Welsh Fire. On the other hand, the women’s season will begin on 11th August 2022.
