The draft for the next season of The Hundred League in England was recently announced. Many legendary cricketers are participating in this new form of cricket. While the 100-ball cricket became popular in a short period of time, some notable players were overlooked in the draft. Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have not been bid by anyone. At the same time, many young cricketers will get an opportunity to play in this tournament.
Eight franchises have now completed their squads with the players they had already selected in the draft held on Thursday (March 23). Pakistan captain Babar Azam and Rizwan, who is ranked second in the T20 rankings, were hoping to get a contract from any team. However, none of the eight franchises showed interest in him. At the same time, Pakistan’s young fast bowlers Shaheen Afridi and Harris Rauf were selected. Team David playing for Mumbai Indians in IPL became top peak.
Australia’s veteran all-rounder Mitchell Marsh, who recently toured India, will be seen playing the tournament for the first time. Also New Zealand’s Michael Bracewell, youngster Rehan Ahmed and Devon Conway will be participating in this tournament for the first time.
The third season of the tournament will be played this year. Many new rules are also seen in this new format of 100 balls. The first two seasons of the competition received a great response from the audience. Interestingly, apart from men, The Hundred League is also played for women cricketers. Leading women Indian cricketers also participate in this league.
