Georgia Adams and Tash Farrant have been retained by Oval Invincibles for next year’s The Hundred, the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) announced on Thursday (November 26).

Farrant, the left-arm seamer, returned nine wickets in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint (RHF) Trophy, the 50-over domestic competition that was played in August-September. She played for South East Stars in the competition and has also played 14 T20Is for England.

“It’s great to know that I’m staying at Oval Invincibles for the first season of The Hundred,” she said after the announcement. “The women’s game continues to grow despite the wider challenges the entire sport is facing and next summer can’t come soon enough.”

Adams, on the other hand, led Southern Vipers to the title win in the RHF Trophy. She also led the run-scoring chart, finishing with 500 runs including a best of 154 not out and chipped in with seven wickets as well.

“I can’t wait for next year so we can finally get the long-awaited chance to compete in The Hundred,” said Adams. “It will definitely be the spectacle of the summer and I’m particularly looking forward to playing a format of cricket where I can express myself as a batter and play expansive cricket.”

“I’m excited about joining up with my teammates at Oval Invincibles and getting the opportunity to be based at one of the top cricket grounds in the country.”
