A further five players have signed up for The Hundred as replacement overseas players.

West Indies allrounder and T20 World Cup winner Hayley Matthews will join Welsh Fire after it was confirmed that Suné Luus has returned a positive Covid-19 test and is not able to travel.

Fresh off making 174* in his LV= Insurance County Championship debut, New Zealander Colin de Grandhomme has signed for Southern Brave in place of Andre Russell who will not take part in the first edition of The Hundred due to international commitments and Guyana’s status on the UK red list.

Marchant de Lange will start the competition for Trent Rockets following Wahab Riaz’s visa issues. Glenn Phillips will now play the entirety of The Hundred for Welsh Fire in place of Kieron Pollard due to injury.

Adelaide Strikers batter Katie Mack has been signed by Birmingham Phoenix as a replacement for Ellyse Perry who has withdrawn from the competition due to personal reasons. Amy Jones will now captain the side.

Finally, Ollie Pope will miss the start of The Hundred as he recovers from a quad injury while Alice Monaghan replaces Hannah Jones at London Spirit.

Colin de Grandhomme said, “When I got the call to join Southern Brave it was an easy decision. I’ve settled in really well at Hampshire and I’m hoping to create some more fantastic memories at the Ageas Bowl. I’m really looking forward to linking up with Devon Conway again and all of the guys can’t wait to get going.”

Hayley Matthews said, “I’m thrilled to be taking part in The Hundred this summer. It’ll be a lot of fun to play in Cardiff alongside the like of Sarah Taylor in front of big crowds. The Hundred can help move women’s cricket forward and it’ll be great to take part.”

Beth Barrett-Wild, Head of The Hundred Women’s Competition said, “I’m gutted for Suné Luus, I know how excited she was about playing for Welsh Fire in The Hundred this summer, but we all wish her a very speedy recovery. In Hayley Matthews we have a big stage player, in brilliant form, coming in, and I’m sure she will be looking forward to the opportunity to show off her skills.”
