Women's Player Selection

|How The Women's Player Selection Works|

  • The Hundred Women’s Competition in 2021 will feature eight teams and the best players in the world.
  • Squads of 15 players will be confirmed ahead of the 2021 edition
  • All players may re-sign for the same team as 2020

Stage One - September 2020

All players signed to play in the 2020 edition of The Hundred will be given the opportunity to roll-over their contracts to 2021. By doing so they will continue to play for the same team and be paid the same fee.

During stage one all players will be able to roll-over their 2020 contract for 2021

Stage Two - October 2020 to May 2021

Each team will select the rest of its squad of 15 and must sign a minimum of 13 players by the end of stage two. Teams can sign a maximum of three England women’s centrally contracted players and a maximum of three overseas players.

Teams can sign a maximum of three overseas players.

Stage Three - June 2021

If any team hasn't signed a full squad in stage two, this is the time to do it. By the end of stage three each squad will have a squad of 15 players.
