Warner and Smith will cost a packet for The Hundred teams

16th October 2019, 12:58 by Simon Barlow

Disgraced Australian duo David Warner and Steve Smith are among the most expensive stars available to draft at next year's The Hundred.

The batsmen, who helped Australia retain the Ashes earlier this year after returning from lengthy bans in the wake of the 2018 ball-tampering affair, carry the top £125,000 reserve price.

Fellow Australian Mitchell Starc, Sri Lankan star Lasith Malinga, West Indies batsman Chris Gayle and South Africa quick bowler Kagiso Rabada will also carry the joint-highest price-tag.

Eight city-based teams will contest The Hundred, which takes place next summer from July 17 to August 16.

Their respective head coaches will get to choose which star names they want in the player draft for the inaugural 100-ball competition when it takes place on Sunday evening.

All the 239 overseas players and 331 domestic stars in the draft have set reserve prices for their services, with each team having two spaces in their squad in each of the following pay brackets: £125,000, £100,000, £75,000, £60,000, £50,000, £40,000 and £30,000.

Captains receive a bonus of £10,000 but if a player's reserve price is not met, they will not be selected during the main draft.
