Smriti Mandhana, Harmanpreet Kaur, Jemimah Rodrigues, and Deepti Sharma are the four Indian Women’s Cricketers to have been given NoCs by the BCCI to partake in the upcoming Hundred competition. Apart from the aforementioned quartet - all of whom who were part of the now-defunct Kia Super League in England - ICC's No. 1-ranked T20I batter Shafali Verma, is named as a potential replacement player.

According to ESPNcricinfo, the BCCI have already sent the ECB No-Objection Certificates (NOCs) for each of them with Kaur and Mandhana being named in the Manchester Originals and Southern Brave respectively. London Spirit and Northern Superchargers will have the services of  Deepti Sharma and Jemimah Rodrigues. 

The Indian Women’s team have travel assignments in England from mid-June with the side slated to play a host of limited-overs matches apart from a Test match against England. The selected players will stay back for the tournament which is starting on July 21 with the match between the Invincibles and the Originals at The Oval.

There will be no men’s cricketer from India partaking in the competition even though ECB Chief Executive Tom Harisson had discussed the idea with the Indian top brass during England’s visit to India last March. He met Jay Shah in Ahmedabad and believed to have had a discussion with Sourav Ganguly as well on call.
