Northern Superchargers have confirmed the men’s and women’s stars they have re-signed to return to Headingley this summer for the third year of The Hundred.

Fans in purple will be delighted to see the return to the men’s team of two local ICC Men’s T20 World Cup winners in Harry Brook and Adil Rashid, alongside Adam Lyth, Matthew Potts and David Wiese.

The women’s side boasts exciting retentions too with the return of Yorkshire native and captain Hollie Armitage, as well as Australian superstar Alyssa Healy. Wicketkeeper-batter Bess Heath and Linsey Smith will also return to the Superchargers squad.

Rashid Khan, Jos Buttler, Nat Sciver-Brunt, Smriti Mandhana and Glenn Maxwell are among the list of players who have been retained by other teams in The Hundred.

Across both competitions, 114 players have been retained in total, meaning 134 spots remain to be filled at The Hundred Draft powered by Sage, and across the open market process in the women’s competition.

Teams in the men’s competition are able to retain 10 players, and women’s teams can retain four of their players. Six men’s sides have retained all 10, while Welsh Fire – under the new leadership of Australian great Mike Hussey – will have eight places to fill at the draft, at which they’ll have the first pick.

The women’s competition will be hosting a draft for the first time, with Tammy Beaumont’s Welsh Fire the first side to pick with the likes of Sophia Dunkley, Danni Wyatt and Kate Cross, as well as a host of international players, up for grabs. The final list for The Hundred Draft powered by Sage is due to be confirmed on February 28.

The Hundred will kick off its third year at Trent Bridge on Tuesday 1 August with a Trent Rockets v Southern Brave double-header the first of 68 games that promise high-octane men’s and women’s sporting action, live music, and a host of family-friendly entertainment.

More than half a million people attended games during The Hundred’s second year in 2022, including a record-breaking 271,000 watching live women’s fixtures across the competition and more families buying tickets than in 2021.

There will be an initial, exclusive window to buy tickets from 15-28 March for anyone who has previously bought tickets for The Hundred. Those yet to attend can sign up in advance at thehundred.com for priority ticket access from 5–18 April. Tickets will then go on general sale on Thursday 20 April. Tickets this year remain great value in line with 2022 pricing, with prices set at £5 for juniors aged 6-15, free for children five and under, and adults starting from £10.

Northern Superchargers player Bess Heath said: “It’s always a pleasure to play for Northern Superchargers in The Hundred and I’m delighted to have been retained ahead of the third season. We’ve got some great players and I know we’ll add to that in the draft and be in a great position to compete in 2023.”

England Men and Durham bowler Matthew Potts said: “I’m really excited to be playing for Northern Superchargers again this summer. The atmosphere is always brilliant at The Hundred, and I know it’s a competition that’s helped the game reach new fans and that’s a great thing to be a part of. I like the way the Superchargers are formulating this year and hope it can develop my game further.”

Over 14.1 million people tuned in to watch The Hundred action in 2022 and games will again be broadcast live on Sky Sports and BBC broadcast and digital channels throughout the competition.
