Shakib, Tamim in The Hundred for 100k

Bangladesh cricket superstars Shakib Al Hasan and Tamim Iqbal were among six Bangladesh players to have registered for England and Wales Cricket Board’s (ECB’s) inaugural draft for The Hundred.

The four other Bangladesh players to have signed up were Mohammad Mithun, Mohammad Saifuddin, Mustafizur Rahman and Mushfiqur Rahim.

The Hundred is a new competition in a novel 100-ball format in which eight freshly formed teams, representing seven cities from around the UK, compete against each other. Each team has both a men’s and women’s side.

165 overseas players were registered in the full list before the main draft on October 20 with the likes of Rashid Khan, Chris Gayle, David Warner, Aaron Finch and Babar Azam some of the major names who have already signed up.

Both Shakib and Tamim entered with a reserve price of 100,000 pounds, alongside other star names such as Andre Russell, Glenn Maxwell, Rashid Khan, Sandeep Lamichhane, Shahid Afridi, Dwayne Bravo, Sunil Narine and Kieron Pollard.

There were four reserve price brackets  -- 125,000, 100,000, 75,000, 50,000 and 40,000 pounds.

67 players have not set a reserve price and the four other Bangladesh players in Mushfiqur, Mustafizur, Saifuddin and Mithun are expected to be among them.
