The Hundred 2024 draft includes Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, and Amy Jones

Eight teams have confirmed their players ahead of the Draft in March.

Jason Roy, Dawid Malan, and Amy Jones are among the England players who will be available for selection in next month's 2024 Hundred Draft after the player retention for the eight teams was confirmed.

Roy was one of the highest-profile names among those released after helping the Oval Invincibles win the men's competition last year. Roy had an average of 17.11 and a strike rate of 128.33. His expected involvement in Major League Cricket, which will clash with the Hundred in 2024, is likely to have been a factor. The Invincibles has also opted not to retain two of their overseas players, Sunil Narine and Heinrich Klaasen, who both played in the inaugural edition of the MLC.

However, there will be some overlap in talent between the Hundred and the MLC, with Rashid Khan (Trent Rockets), Finn Allen (Southern Brave), Haris Rauf (Welsh Fire), Adam Zampa, and Spencer Johnson (both Oval Invincibles) all retained for this summer despite their involvement in the USA. Other names are likely to feature in the final draft list, which will be confirmed on Monday.

Malan and Tom Kohler-Cadmore were among the top earners at Trent Rockets. Both will return to the pool, as will Tom Banton, who was not retained by Northern Superchargers. Ollie Pope, who has a red ball central contract with the ECB, was not retained by Welsh Fire.

In the women's competition, the top three pay bands have received a significant boost, and there are seven spots to fill in the top £50,000 bracket. Jones, who is England's first-choice wicketkeeper, was released by Birmingham Phoenix. Meanwhile, the retirements of Katherine Sciver-Brunt and Anya Shrubsole have created vacancies at Rockets and Southern Brave, respectively.

Overseas players such as Ellyse Perry, Sophie Devine (both Phoenix), Marizanne Kapp (Invincibles), Phoebe Litchfield (Superchargers), Hayley Matthews, and Shabnim Ismail (both Fire) are among those returning.

In total, 137 players have been retained. Men's teams could retain up to 10 players, while women's teams could retain up to eight. The remaining 75 spots will be filled via the draft on March 20th. The Northern Superchargers, who finished last in 2023, will have the first pick in the men's draft, while Birmingham Phoenix will start things off in the women's draft.

Each team will have one Right-to-Match card, which they can use to re-sign a player from their previous year's squad, provided they match the salary offered by the rival team during the draft.

The Hundred tournament will commence on July 23 with a double-header at The Oval and will run for four weeks, culminating in the finals at Lord's on August 18.
