I cannot contain my excitement for The Hundred.

To be a part of BBC’s coverage of the new 100-ball competition and also be playing for Manchester Originals will be a unique experience.

I can go around the country and commentate on the girls I will be going up against and then take that into my game.

It will be a good opportunity for me to see where my game is at, if I am good enough to play at the world stage and see if I can push for an England place again or if I am happy where I am at and take cricket and commentary as it comes.

I have chosen five girls as my ‘ones to watch’ for The Hundred, they are all superstars in their own right and players who I am looking forward to either facing or playing with.
