Watch The Hundred Player Draft Tonight!

The player draft for The Hundred will be staged this Sunday (October 20th) from 7pm when eight new city-based teams are set to pick from the best players in men’s cricket.

Sporting history will be made when Trent Rockets make the first pick as a player draft is held in a major UK competition for the very first time.

All eight teams in the competition, will select 12 players from the pool of eligible entrants with those picked joining the England red-ball contracted players and Local Icons already announced for each side. Somerset’s Tom Banton has already been selected as a Local Icon for the Welsh Fire following a breakthrough season in 2019.

Following The Draft each team will have the opportunity for a final ‘Wildcard’ pick, to be chosen during next year’s Vitality Blast. As a result, eight high-performing Blast players will also have the opportunity to join one of the teams.

The draft will be broadcast live by Sky Sports and extensively across the BBC’s digital channels with significant media interest from around the world.

A total of 19 Somerset Players have put themselves forward for the draft with the full list as follows:
