Smriti Mandhana Joins Southern Brave

Mandhana is set to form a devastating opening partnership with Danni Wyatt at Southern Brave for The Hundred this summer

Teams across The Hundred Women’s Competition have today confirmed a number of new overseas signings, with Southern Brave announcing the signing of Smriti Mandhana.

The new 100-ball competition, which starts with a standalone women’s fixture at the Kia Oval on July 21, will now feature five Indian superstars: Harmanpreet Kaur, Deepti Sharma, Jemimah Rodrigues, Shefali Verma and Mandhana.

Mandhana is set to form a devastating opening partnership with Danni Wyatt at Southern Brave, Deepti Sharma will join England captain Heather Knight at London Spirit and Jemimah Rodrigues will be in the purple of Northern Superchargers.

It’s so good to finally be able to confirm the involvement of some of the superstars from the India team. They’re a hugely exciting group of players and they’ll bring a lot to the competition. I can’t wait for July 21, I can’t wait for the whole competition, and I can’t wait for fans to see these world-class players doing what they do best.

The Ageas Bowl will be the home for both Southern Brave squads, with the sides each facing seven other teams in the competition when it gets underway in July 2021.

As well as offering world-class cricket, The Hundred aims to open the game up to more families and young people by fusing action-packed, fast-paced cricket with blockbuster entertainment off the pitch.

Affordability for families and young people has been prioritised with tickets for all under-16s priced at £5 and children aged five-and-under admitted for free.  

All tickets are currently available at the early bird prices - starting from £10 for adults, £5 for under-16s while infants are free (0-5 years) - with tickets already selling fast.
