The first-ever women's Hundred draft took place on Thursday evening, with each team making between four and six picks to fill out their squads having earlier retained between two and four players from their 2022 cohort.

Welsh Fire, picking first, tried to sign Sophie Devine and Danni Wyatt, only to be thwarted by Birmingham Phoenix and Southern Brave respectively, who used their Right-To-Match cards to keep hold of their players. Eventually, they made Sophia Dunkley their first pick.

Each team will fill out their squad in an open-market process before the tournament starts on August 1, with two teams - London Spirit and Birmingham Phoenix - both in the market for a third and final overseas player. Here is how the squads stack up for now.
