Manchester Originals signed three high-profile all-rounders — West Indian Andre Russell, Sri Lankan Wanindu Hasaranga and Australian Sean Abbott in the men’s category of the Hundred draft on Tuesday.

On the other hand, London Spirits signed Kieron Pollard after their attempt to sign Sunil Narine failed owing to the Right to Match card used by Oval Invincibles. However, Pollard won’t be available for a part of the season due to his commitments in the Caribbean Premier League (CPL).

Spirits’ other signings include Liam Dawson, Australian international Riley Meredith and Jordan Thompson.

Meanwhile, Colin Munro moved base from Originals to Trent Rockets, where he will be joined by the English duo of Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Ian Cockbain.

Welsh Fire picked three big overseas players — Australia’s Adam Zampa, South Africa’s David Miller and Pakistan’s Naseem Shah in addition to some strong domestic cricketers in the form of Joe Clarke and Tom Banton.
