As a result of injuries received on Tuesday during the second one-day international against Ireland, Cricket Australia has decided to withdraw Alyssa Healy and Ellyse Perry from the women’s Hundred. This decision was made on short notice.
They both won’t be able to play in Friday’s third and final ODI before heading back to their respective countries for rehabilitation.
Healy has kept wicket despite suffering repeated injuries despite the fact that she is now on tour in England and Ireland; nevertheless, on Tuesday she sustained a fresh fracture to her left index finger.
In the meanwhile, Perry is dealing with a left knee issue that forced her to leave the field during the second inning on Tuesday and, according to a CA statement, would necessitate a period of recuperation lasting anywhere from three to six weeks.
They were scheduled to compete in the Hundred for Northern Superchargers and Birmingham Phoenix, respectively, and were expected to be among the most prominent international players to compete in the Hundred this season.
As a direct consequence of this, their departures come as a significant blow to the other competitors.
The news, however, that Jemimah Rodrigues will be returning to Superchargers for a third consecutive season after signing a last-minute replacement agreement to cover for the injured Heather Graham helps to mitigate some of the negative effects of these developments. Healy, on the other side, will be replaced by Phoebe Litchfield, a left-handed pitcher.
Rodrigues, who is now 22 years old, was the second-highest run-scorer in the inaugural season of the Hundred.
However, because to a wrist injury, he was unable to participate in the most of the competition in the previous year.
The Superchargers made the decision not to keep her before the draft in March but have since decided to use her as a substitute player.
This summer, she will be competing in the competition alongside three other Indian players: Richa Ghosh (London Spirit), Harmanpreet Kaur (Trent Rockets), and Smriti Mandhana (Southern Brave).
In a press release, Rodrigues expressed his delight at rejoining the cast of “The Hundred,” saying, “I’m so excited to be back in the show.” “It’s a tournament on par with the best in the world, and I’ve had a lot of fun competing in it in the past.
Because of an injury, I was forced to withdraw from the competition last year, so it’s wonderful to be back this time around.
I can’t wait to get back out on the field at Headingley because it’s such a fantastic venue to play in and the supporters are amazing.
The individual who will take Perry’s place has not been identified. In other news pertaining to the women’s competition, Hannah Rainey has been recruited by Oval Invincibles to take Beth Langston’s position, while Chloe Skelton is going to take the place of Georgia Davis.
A number of short-term replacement arrangements have been agreed upon for the men’s Hundred. Ish Sodhi will cover for Rashid Khan at Trent Rockets while Rashid Khan is playing for Afghanistan against Pakistan, Jimmy Neesham will cover for Heinrich Klaasen at Oval Invincibles at the end of the group stage, and Mitchell Santner is a partial replacement for Tim David at Southern Brave at the end of the group stage. These substitutions were made public by ESPNcricinfo.
Meanwhile, the Australian legspinner Tanveer Sangha will return to Birmingham Phoenix from August 14 as cover for Shadab Khan.
Meanwhile, the Pakistani fast bowler Zaman Khan has signed a short-term agreement to replace Josh Little at Manchester Originals for Ireland’s Twenty20 International series against India.
Because to injuries, Ollie Pope (Welsh Fire), Olly Stone (London Spirit), and Fred Klaassen (Manchester Originals) have all withdrawn from the competition.
Their places have been taken by Somerset allrounder Ben Green, Surrey seamer Dan Worrall, and Durham allrounder Ben Raine respectively.
