Women's Player Selection

Teams in The Hundred Women's Competition have a bespoke selection process. Ahead of the 2022 competition, here's how it worked in 2021.

  • The Hundred Women’s Competition in 2021 featured eight teams and the best players in the world
  • Squads of 15 players
  • All players able to re-sign for the same team as 2021

Stage One - England

All teams have a two-week window to retain a maximum of two centrally contracted England players. 

Stage Two - Retention

A wider retention window for overseas and domestic players will run. During this window, teams can retain any of their players. 

This stage will run in conjunction with an open market for non-retained England women's central contract players. 

This will run until the end of January.
