Babar Azam, Pakistan’s captain and an accomplished batter, was the most popular pick in a fan poll ahead of The Hundred draft. The poll garnered a total of 25% of the votes in favor of Babar Azam, making him the top choice. Shaheen Shah Afridi, Azam’s teammate, came in second with 8% of the votes, and wicketkeeper-batter Mohammad Rizwan was in fifth place with 4%.
The Draft, which is set to take place on Thursday, will give teams the opportunity to finalize their squads. Each team will have the chance to select a player in reverse order of where they finished in last year’s edition. The players in the draft have a reserve price, and they cannot be bought for less than that amount. However, teams will have the option to spend more than a player’s reserve price.
The Draft will see the selection of 64 players, including 30 men and 34 women. Trent Rockets were the winners in the men’s competition last year, while the Oval Invincibles claimed victory for the second consecutive year in the women’s competition, defeating Southern Brave in a rematch of the 2021 final.
