All you need to know about Deadline Day for The Hundred in 2023!

Deadline Day is coming on Thursday 16 February 2023!

So, what exactly does that mean? Well, we've got all of the information you need!

What is Deadline Day?

Deadline Day is the cut off for teams to retain players from their 2022 squads.

Men's teams can keep 10 players from last years teams, while Women's teams can retain four of their players.

But teams do not have to use all of their retention slots!

They could save some of their squad places to secure more players in The Hundred Draft.

Details of the Women's selection process, which is new for 2023, can be found here.

A reminder of the 2022 squads

Men's Squad Retentions

Each men’s team will be able to retain one England Centrally Contracted player from their existing squad in their set ‘Centrally Contracted’ slot. All other England Centrally Contracted players will be able to be retained in one of their existing team’s 13-player price brackets, or are able to enter the main draft.

Teams will also be given two Vitality Wildcard picks, which will be made later in the year, to reward domestic form. Players who aren’t picked up in the initial Draft will still be able to pick up a contract in The Hundred if they hit form in the Vitality Blast.
