Southern Brave Confirm Captains For 2023 Competition

James Vince and Anya Shrubsole reprise their role as Southern Brave captains for the 2023 competition

Southern Brave can confirm that Hampshire and England batter James Vince and former England World Cup winner Anya Shrubsole return as captains of Southern Brave for the 2023 edition of The Hundred.

Vince, who has scored 365 runs across both tournaments, captained the ‘Green Army’ to victory in the inaugural edition of the men’s Hundred in 2021, and led Hampshire Hawks and the Gulf Giants to the trophies of their respective competitions in 2022.

Shrubsole, who retired from international cricket at the end of the 2022 Women’s Cricket World Cup, has captained the Brave to back-to-back Lord’s finals, although Oval Invincibles have lived up to their name and got their hands on the trophy on both occasions.

The third year of The Hundred gets underway on Tuesday 1st August with a double-header at Trent Bridge – the first of 34 matchdays that promise high-octane men’s and women’s sporting action, live music, and a host of family-friendly entertainment.

More than half a million people attended games during The Hundred’s second year in 2022, including a record-breaking 271,000 watching live women’s fixtures across the competition and more families buying tickets than in 2021.

Tickets are selling fast and are available here. Tickets this year remain great value in line with 2022 pricing, with prices set at £5 for juniors aged 6-16, free for children five and under, and adults starting from £10.

Over 14.1 million people tuned in to watch The Hundred action in 2022 and games will again be broadcast live on Sky Sports and BBC broadcast and digital channels throughout the competition.
