Smriti Mandhana is one of five Indian players to be confirmed as taking part in The Hundred

Smriti Mandhana joins Southern Brave, Deepti Sharma is set for a stint with London Spirit, and Rodrigues is headed for Northern Superchargers.

The Indian cohort provide welcome star quality, as there remains a question mark over the involement of several Australian players.

Rachael Haynes has already pulled out of the tournament, having been due to play for Oval Invincibles, and it is feared that several of her international teammates might also withdraw.
