England’s Test stars have been attached to teams for The Hundred, the ECB’s new city-based franchise competition.
The eight franchises – which are all attached to cities in the UK – unveiled their official names and kits at an event in east London on Thursday morning.
Two ‘Local Icons’ who would be joining each team were also announced, along with two female players who would be attached to each women’s franchise.
Eight of the ten England players with Test contracts were assigned to teams, with James Anderson and Stuart Broad not taking part in The Hundred in a playing capacity.
The remaining places in the squads will be confirmed when the main draft takes place on October 20. A host of star names and white-ball legends have already entered the draft.
