The Hundred draft

Mitchell Starc, Chris Gayle and Kane Williamson are among the star overseas players available for selection in The Hundred main draft on Sunday (October 20).

These superstars are among the 239 players from outside England to enter The Hundred draft, which will be live-streamed on the BBC Sport website at 7 pm (BST) onwards.

The eight franchises competing in the ECB’s new competition next summer will each pick 12 players during the draft, to complete a 15-man roster alongside the England red-ball players and ‘local icons’ they selected earlier this month.

Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan is tipped to be one of the top picks on the night, with the likes of Steve Smith, David Warner, Shakib al Hasan and Kagiso Rabada also expected to be snapped up in the opening rounds.

England World Cup winners Liam Plunkett and Mark Wood headline the 331 domestic players who have put their names forward, with Sam Billings and Dawid Malan also riding high on many teams’ draft boards.

Limited-overs specialists Kieran Pollard, Sunil Narine and Andre Russell join Gayle in a sizeable contingent from the T20 world champions, West Indies, with India being the only major cricketing nation not taking part because of restrictions placed on their players by the BCCI.

Note: There are seven salary bands, with up to two players to be picked at each band (£125,000, £100,000, £75,000, £60,000, £50,000, £40,000 and £30,000 are the men’s bands, with captains receiving a £10,000 bonus).
