Three England internationals. Plus a star domestic batter. Four more players are staying with Oval Invincibles.
The latest four players retained by Oval Invincibles. Georgia Adams, Tom Curran, Tash Farrant and Reece Topley are all kept for 2021.
Curran will feature alongside younger brother and fellow England international Sam. Tom is well-known for his expert bowling at the end of a game and has featured in high-profile leagues across the world. The Kia Oval is Tom’s home ground in county cricket.
Farrant brings England experience and her left-arm fast bowling has been key in county cricket. Adams is a star batter who enhanced her reputation with a phenomenal 2020. She scored over 500 runs in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.
Topley joins Curran in the Men’s team. The left-arm quick has come through major injuries in his career and returned to the England team in 2020.
Tom Curran said:
“I am thrilled to be playing for Oval Invincibles. I love playing at The Kia Oval and it will be special to play in the first season of The Hundred at my home ground.
“I think The Hundred is an incredibly exciting competition and I’m really looking forward to it. We are building a strong squad with a number of local players which I hope will help us be successful next summer.”
Georgia Adams added:
“I can’t wait for next year so we can finally get the long-awaited chance to compete in The Hundred. It will definitely be the spectacle of the summer and I’m particularly looking forward to playing a format of cricket where I can express myself as a batter and play expansive cricket.
“I’m excited about joining up with my teammates at Oval Invincibles and getting the opportunity to be based at one of the top cricket grounds in the country.”
Tash Farrant commented:
“It’s great to know that I’m staying at Oval Invincibles for the first season of The Hundred. The women’s game continues to grow despite the wider challenges the entire sport is facing and next summer can’t come soon enough.”
Reece Topley said:
“It was a no brainer to stay at Oval Invincibles and I’m really pleased it has been confirmed. I’ve got some good memories of playing at The Kia Oval already and I’m looking forward to creating some more in The Hundred next summer.”
