West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor is Southern Brave’s latest signing for next summer’s The Hundred.
The 28-year-old will join existing squad members Suzie Bates, Anya Shrubsole and Danni Wyatt at The 1st Central County Ground, which has been announced as the host venue of the Southern Brave women’s team.
Taylor, who is currently ranked No. 4 on the ICC rankings for T20 batting, said: “I can't wait to join Southern Brave. The other three players we've already announced are very strong and it's going to be such a great competition. I'm really looking forward to working under Charlotte Edwards again.
"There's also a strong Caribbean vibe in the men's team at Southern Brave - with Andre Russell, Jofra Archer and Chris Jordan - so it will be nice to play alongside them and hopefully both teams can have success."
Taylor was one of eight signings confirmed today, with each of The Hundred’s women’s team announcing another marquee player.
Sussex’s Georgia Elwiss has been signed by Birmingham Phoenix, joining Amy Jones, Kirstie Gordon and Sophie Devine.
London Spirit have added Deandra Dottin to their squad alongside Heather Knight, Freya Davies, Tammy Beaumont.
Mignon du Preez will join Kate Cross, Sophie Ecclestion and Lizelle Lee at Manchester Originals, while Rachael Haynes is headed to Oval Invincibles where Laura Marsh, Fran Wilson and Dane van Niekerk are already part of the squad.
Trent Rockets have added Elyse Villani to their squad, which also features Nat Sciver, Katherine Brunt and Sophie Molineux and Welsh Fire will have Jess Jonassen at their disposal alongside Katie George, Bryony Smith and Meg Lanning.
The teams’ head coaches have until May 31st to finalise their line ups for the inaugural edition of The Hundred which gets underway next July.
