Stafanie Taylor and Deandra Dottin have become the first West Indies players to sign up for the Women’s Hundred, joining Australians Jess Jonassen and Rachael Haynes and South Africa’s Mignon de Preez as each of the competition’s eight teams which will be played in London.

Dottin will play for London Spirit for the competition’s first season, starting in July next year and Taylor for Southern Brave.

West Indies Captain, Taylor will play alongside New Zealand star Suzie Bates and England internationals Anya Shrubsole.

The announcement means that the eight teams have each announced four members of their 15-strong squads. Team head coaches have until May 31 to settle their line-ups.

West Indies’ Deandra Dottin throws the bat in delight as they win against Australia in the final of the ICC Women’s World Twenty20 2016 cricket tournament at Eden Gardens in Kolkata, India, Sunday, April 3, 2016.
