Final Squads for the Hundred 2021 post withdrawals
The Hundred cricket tournament is now just days away. Several International stars have withdrawn from the tournament in the past couple of months, especially from Men’s division. But the teams have replaced them with a mix of other international cricketers as well as local cricketers from England.
This is the right time to take a look at the final squads for the hundred 2021. We look at the men and women squads of the eight teams and how they have been impacted by the withdrawals and replacements. The eight teams will be competing in the inaugural competition of the tournament which will be played from 21 July 2021. The men and women competition will take place simultaneously. The tournament will be played under special rules, which can be found here.
The slider below lists the latest squads of the eight men’s teams, along with the names of the players who were a part of the original squad but have withdrawn for some reason. Scroll the slider to see the squads of each team.

A quick look at the Men’s squads and we find that except for Oval Invincibles, all other teams have been hit by withdrawals of key players from their original squads that were announced a couple of months back. Mostly, it is the International players from Australia, Pakistan, and West Indies who have made themselves unavailable. The withdrawal of high profile international stars such as David Warner, Marcus Stoinis, Andre Russel, Glenn Maxwell, Kieron Pollard, and Kane Williamson, has certainly taken some sheen away from the competition.
If we look at the impact the withdrawals are likely to have on the teams, we find that some teams such as Birmingham Phoenix, Manchester Originals, and Southern Brave have been hit hard.
- Birmingham Phoenix lost Adam Zampa, Kane Williamson, and Shaheen Shah Afridi.
- Manchester Originals lost Kagiso Rabada, Nicholas Pooran, and Shadab Khan.
- Southern Brave also lost three heavyweights – Andre Russell, David Warner, and Marcus Stoinis.
Oval Invincibles is the only team that has been able to retain all players that were in its original squad, and there were no withdrawals.
Despite all these withdrawals, there is still enough star power to pull the fans to the competition, especially most of the English Internationals are on the rolls.
The teams have worked swiftly to arrange for replacements by signing other available International players such as Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis, Colin de Grandhomme, and emerging stars such as Devon Conway. Several players from the domestic circuit who performed well in the Vitality Blast tournament have also been roped in.

The women squads have also seen some withdrawals due to various reasons, but the numbers are significantly lower than those in the Men’s squads. Four teams – London Spirit, Manchester Originals, Oval Invincibles, and Southern Brave have managed to retain their orginals group of players.
However, some star power has been lost in the Women’s division as well, as players such as Ellyse Perry, Beth Mooney, Georgia Wareham and Hayley Matthews have made themselves unavailable.
The women’s division also got a boost by adding five Indian women cricketers that include the current world #1 T20 player Shafali Verma, the captain of Indian T20 team Harmanpreet Kaur, and Smriti Mandhana, who is the most popular female cricketer in the world on Social media.
All the eight teams are trying to gain momentum not only with their on-field preparations, but also to create an ff-field buzz and create a loyal fan following. To find out which teams are winning the social media battle, you can check out our rankings of the hundred teams.
