The 1st match of the Women's Hundred will be played between Oval Invincibles and Manchester Originals at the Kia Oval on July 21st 2021.
England internationals Kate Cross, Sophie Ecclestone and overseas signings Lizelle Lee, Mignon du Preez and Harmanpreet Kaur form the star power of Manchester Originals.
Kate Cross may not be a T20 specialist but her recent performances in the one-off Test and the ODI series against India keep her in good stead. Indian captain and explosive batter Harmanpreet Kaur also showed signs of returning to form in the England T20Is.
The South African pair of Lizelle Lee and Mignon du Preez provide heft to the team while the best spinner in the women's game Sophie Ecclestone will be able to rescue Manchester even from deep holes.
Players with domestic retainer contracts Georgie Boyce, Cordelia Griffith, Alex Hartley, Hannah Jones, Emma Lamb and Ellie Threlkeld will be crucial to the fortunes of Manchester.
Oval Invincibles have England internationals Fran Wilson and Mady Villiers, both of whom are currently not permanent members of the national side.
The South African trio of Dane van Niekerk, Marizanne Kapp and Shabnim Ismail are their overseas signings, and bolster the side in all the three spheres. This will help the team cope with the absence of Rachael Haynes.
Georgia Adams, Natasha Farrant and Jo Gardner are Oval Invincibles' leading domestic players.
Lets have a look at the squads:
Manchester Originals - Kate Cross, Danielle Collins, Mignon du Preez, Harmanpreet Kaur, Alice Dyson, Cordelia Griffith, Hannah Jones, Lizelle Lee, Georgie Boyce, Natalie Brown, Ellie Threlkeld, Alex Hartley, Emma Lamb, Sophie Ecclestone, Laura Jackson
Oval Invincibles - Fran Wilson, Georgia Adams, Tash Farrant, Megan Belt, Eva Gray, Marizanne Kapp, Rhianna Southby, Sarah Bryce, Alice Capsey, Jo Gardner, Dane van Niekerk, Mady Villiers, Shabnim Ismail, Danielle Gregory
