Southern Brave Draft Quinton de Kock And Tahlia McGrath For 2022 Hundred

South African keeper-batter Quinton de Kock and Australian World Cup winner Tahlia McGrath among star names heading to Southern Brave for 2022

Southern Brave got off to an exciting start with the choice to re-sign South African keeper-batter Quinton de Kock as their first pick, and followed that up by drafting the exciting England U19 spinner Rehan Ahmed.

De Kock was one of the stars of The Hundred’s launch season last year, while local Hampshire batter Joe Weatherley is also picked up by the Brave after an impressive 2021 Vitality Blast. Meanwhile, Ahmed was one of the stars of England’s team which reached the final of the Men's Under 19 World Cup earlier this year, whilst Surrey left-armer Dan Moriarty will link up with Ahmed in the spin department.

The women’s side will welcome Australian all-rounder Tahlia McGrath, a breakthrough star in Australia's Ashes and Women’s World Cup win this winter, and Jo Gardner, winner of the edition of The Hundred with Oval Invincibles.

They will also be joined by Gardner’s teammate and Southern Vipers captain Georgia Adams, as well as 16-year-old Southern Vipers Academy bowler Freya Kemp, and opening batter Ella McCaughan.

I can’t wait to come back and play for Southern Brave this summer and hopefully defend our title. Being part of the side last year was special and it was amazing to see the Ageas Bowl packed full with kids having an amazing time.

The first year of The Hundred was a gamechanger for the women’s game and I’m thrilled to be at Southern Brave this year. It wasn’t an easy decision to leave Oval Invincibles but I can’t wait to experience the atmosphere at The Ageas Bowl and hopefully I can make it two wins in a row!

With a host of star players confirmed, The Hundred will have fans on the edge of their seats with world class sport, as well as bringing more family-friendly entertainment off the pitch. In the women’s competition we have the best players from across the world taking part including Meg Lanning, Beth Mooney and Sophie Devine and we are confident we will set a new benchmark for the women’s domestic game. On the men’s side, it’s great to see a mix of new overseas stars like Kieron Pollard and Andre Russell alongside returning stars such as Quinton de Kock and Sunil Narine. It is also brilliant that some of the best domestic white ball players including Tom Banton and Joe Clarke have been recognised and picked up early.

The Hundred proved a big hit with families and young people in particular relishing the mix of fast-paced cricket with music and family entertainment off the pitch which will only be bigger and better this year.
