DEANDRA DOTTIN and Stafanie Taylor have become the first West Indian players to join the women’s competition – signing for London Spirit and Southern Brave respectively.
The eight women’s teams in The Hundred each announced a new marquee signing on November 19.
West Indies captain Taylor said: “I can’t wait to join Southern Brave. The other three players we’ve already announced are very strong and it’s going to be such a great competition. I’m really looking forward to working under Charlotte Edwards again.
“There’s also a strong Caribbean vibe in the men’s team at Southern Brave – with Andre Russell, Jofra Archer and Chris Jordan – so it will be nice to play alongside them and hopefully both teams can have success.”
The five-week competition will be played at the height of summer, starting July 2020, featuring eight new city-based teams; Manchester Originals, Northern Superchargers, Trent Rockets, Birmingham Phoenix, Welsh Fire, Southern Brave, London Spirit & Oval Invincibles.
