The Hundred

The Hundred domestic players – which county stars got a gig?

by Wisden Staff 5 minute read

A list of county cricket domestic players to feature in The Hundred in 2020.

Lancashire batsman Liam Livingstone and his county captain Dane Vilas were the standout picks among domestic players in the inaugural The Hundred player draft.

Both Livingstone and Vilas – the former to Birmingham Phoenix and the latter to Manchester Originals – were first-round picks signed up for £125,000. The former went for more than double his reserve price of £60,000.

Other big gainers included Sussex batsman Phil Salt and Somerset captain Tom Abell, both of whom went to Manchester Originals. Liam Dawson to Southern Brave, Sam Billings to Oval Invincibles and Ravi Bopara to Birmingham Phoenix were all second-round picks who bagged £100,000 each.

Below, we compile a list of The Hundred domestic players set to feature in the new competition in 2020. This list is subject to completion, as the domestic stars in each franchise will be joined by a 16th and final member; a wildcard pick will be signed for £30,000 by each franchise next summer after the conclusion of the T20 Blast.
