Tom Curran has been paired up with his brother – Sam – for next year’s inaugural season of The Hundred as Oval Invincibles announced their squad additions on Thursday (November 26).
“I am thrilled to be playing for Oval Invincibles,” Curran said. “I love playing at the Oval and it will be special to play in the first season of The Hundred at my home ground.
“I think The Hundred is an incredibly exciting competition and I’m really looking forward to it. We are building a strong squad with a number of local players which I hope will help us be successful next summer.”
Joining the Currans is also their Surrey teammate Reece Topley, who recently recovered from a spate of injuries and featured in one ODI against Ireland – making an ODI comeback after a four-year span.
“It was a no brainer to stay at Oval Invincibles and I’m really pleased it has been confirmed. I’ve got some good memories of playing at the Oval already and I’m looking forward to creating some more in The Hundred next summer,” said Topley.
Oval Invincibles’ women’s team will have the services of Georgia Adams and Tash Ferrant. Adams, the Sussex batter who powered Sothern Vipers to title win in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy this year with 500 runs, expressed her eagerness to play in what she termed will be the ‘spectacle of the summer’.
“I can’t wait for next year so we can finally get the long-awaited chance to compete in The Hundred. 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.”
Ferrant, the left-arm seamer who has been part of a successful Kent set up since 2012, was also impressive for the South East Stars, who she captained in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.
“It’s great to know that I’m staying at Oval Invincibles for the first season of The Hundred. The women’s game continues to grow despite the wider challenges the entire sport is facing and next summer can’t come soon enough,” Ferrant said.
The newly confirmed quartet join Rory Burns, Sam Curran and Fran Wilson.
