The Hundred: International stars such as Jemimah Rodrigues, Smriti Mandhana, Ellyse Perry have been retained for the 2022 edition of The Hundred Competition.
As per a report in ESPN Cricinfo, numerous leading Australian cricketers, who couldn’t participate last year, will be playing in the competition this year.
Norther Superchargers batsman, Alyssa Healy, who missed out last year, has been retained. Besides, the likes of Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp, and Shabnim Ismail have been retained by Oval Invincibles.
Rodrigues (Superchargers) and Mandhana (Brave) are the two Indian internationals to have been retained for the competition.
Notably, most of the English players have been retained by their respective franchises. A handful of them, though, have been released and are free to negotiate with other coaches and general managers.
Domestic stars such as Phoebe Graham, Alex Hartley, Georgia Adams, Sarah Bryce, and Bryony Smith are set to join new teams as they failed to agree on retention within the given window.
Also, it is pertinent to note that each team are allowed to sign a fourth overseas player in their squad during a wildcard draft in June.
