Players From The West Indies Proved Extremely

Following those superstars were Ashleigh Gardner, Annabel Sutherland, and Jess Jonassen, rounding out a decidedly green-and-gold-heavy opening to the night.

On the men’s side of the draw, players from West Indies proved extremely popular, with four Windies big hitters picked and no Aussies.

However, there was some joy in later rounds, with Daniel Sams selected by the Northern SuperChargers and Sean Abbott by the Birmingham Phoenix.

Several big-name Aussies missed selection, including David Warner, Josh Inglis, Jhye Richardson, Matthew Wade, and Tim David, who won the inaugural Hundred with Southern Brave in 2021.

International stars Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan

International stars Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan, Sunil Narine, and Jason Roy couldn’t find a home either, although Roy (as a local player) has a chance to be signed as a replacement player should injury strike in the coming weeks.

The latter stages of the draft were far more fruitful for the Australian women. Sophie Molineux, Amanda-Jade Wellington, Heather Graham, Georgia Redmayne, and Lauren Cheatle were all selected.

In somewhat of a surprise, Indian stars Harmanpreet Kaur and. Jemimah Rodrigues did not attract a bid after both were listed in the highest reserve price bracket (£50,000, A$97,000).

The 12 new Australian signings take the total to feature in the tournament to 21. After it was announced last month that nine Australians would be retained by their franchises. They include the title-winning Adam Zampa and Spencer Johnson at the Oval Invincibles.

NSW’s Maitlan Brown, who featured in the championship-winning side with the. Southern Brave last year, wasn’t picked up, and neither were her compatriots. Darcie Brown, Kim Garth, Megan Schutt, Erin Burns, or Laura Harris.
