Five Southern Vipers Retained For The 2023 Hundred

Lauren Bell, Maia Bouchier, Freya Kemp, Linsey Smith, and Charlie Dean have all been retained by their franchises for the 2023 Hundred competition

Five Southern Vipers players have been retained by their respective franchises ahead of the 2023 Hundred competition.

Lauren Bell, Maia Bouchier, and Freya Kemp are all remaining at Southern Brave, whilst Charlie Dean stays at London Spirit, and new signing Linsey Smith remains up with the Northern Superchargers.

Each franchise has a minimum of four players who can be drafted into their side when the brand-new women’s Hundred draft takes place on 23rd March.

Each team will have one Right To Match (RTM) card to use on any player from their 2022 squad, provided they can match the salary another team is offering, in order to keep that player in their 2023 squad.

The remaining seven places will be filled during the open market stage of squad building.

Bell took 11 wickets in eight matches, and was only beaten in terms of wickets by her Southern Brave teammate, Amanda-Jade Wellington with 17.

Bouchier scored 88 runs with a best of 29, whilst Freya Kemp scored 75 runs and took one wicket.

In 2022, Dean took charge of London Spirit in the absence of England captain Heather Knight due to injury, whilst Smith took two wickets for the Superchargers.
