In the women’s competition, Chamari Athapaththu was chosen with Invincibles’ first pick – joining Marizanne Kapp and Alice Capsey at Oval Invincibles – while Dawid Malan and Donovan Ferreira link up with Sam Billings’ men’s team.

Jo Gardner, Lizzie Scott, Georgie Boyce and Tom Lammonby have also signed for Oval Invincibles.

England players Tom Banton, Lauren Filer and Ollie Pope were also on the move, as well as international superstars Andre Russell, Ash Gardner, Shaheen Afridi and Nicholas Pooran.

Jonathan Batty said: “We’re delighted to have picked up some world-class talent in The Hundred Draft today’, adding to an already strong squad. We can’t wait to get going and are very excited to be playing in the opening match of the competition in front of what will no doubt be a full house at The Kia Oval.”
