THE latest wave of international women’s signings for The Hundred have been announced this week, with Australia’s ICC Women’s T20 World Cup winner Nicola Carey coming on board with the Northern Superchargers.

The Superchargers, who will be based at Headingley, had already signed Carey’s compatriot Alyssa Healy.

Healy was man of the match in that T20 World Cup final win over India earlier this month, after smashing 75 off just 39 balls at the top of the order to help set up an easy 85-run win.

With Carey now joining her, as well as England international wicket-keeper batsman Lauren Winfield and Katie Levick, the leading wicket-taker in the history of women’s county cricket, the Superchargers look to have a formidable squad for the competition.

Carey is not the only Australian World Cup winning all-rounder to head over for the tournament, with Birmingham Phoenix confirming Ashleigh Gardner as their second overseas player.

Meanwhile, the T20 World Cup player of the tournament, Beth Mooney, will be reunited with her Australian team-mates Jess Jonassen and Meg Lanning at Welsh Fire.

Beth Barrett-Wild, Head of The Hundred – Women’s Competition, said: “The competition is really building momentum, and it’s very exciting to see the growing list of world class talent involved across the eight teams.

“We’ve now confirmed the names of 18 overseas players who will compete in the women’s competition, including the likes of Meg Lanning, Suzie Bates, Stafanie Taylor and Lizelle Lee; with six still to go, the standard of cricket is set to be very high.”

Each team is permitted to sign up to three overseas players within a 15-strong squad, and to celebrate the latest player signings this week, tickets to standalone women’s matches in The Hundred are back on sale from March 9-16.
