IPL is nothing less than the world cricket phenomenon. It transformed the cricket game completely, and the way of players play the game. Mainly, all the superstars of different international teams are well-dressed in IPL and rate them very highly. As same as the IPL, the English-based league The Hundred transformed the game. It is considered a hundred-ball cricket match played between the men's and women's teams and organized by the wales cricket board and England.

The speedster of the Australia team, Mitchell Starc, has registered his name for The Hundred draft and become part of the tournament for the first time. Starc will be going to play in the third edition of hundred, in which he has to pick one of five vacant 125,000-pound slots for signing overseas. The good thing is that Starc, who avoids avoiding the IPL, can manage his workload and prefers The Hundred. Currently, the starc availability is based on the dates for Australia's tours to South Africa that are scheduled in the upcoming months. 

The winner of the T20 cricket world cup and Former Indian cricketer Robin Uthappa entered The Hundred draft. As a result, he becomes the first Indian man to play in the match. Uthappa entered the draft with a reserve cost of 40,000 pounds. However, Uthappa is not the first Indian who enter this draft. Along with this, Australia speedster Mitchell Starc, Pakistan's Babar Azam, etc., are some other top names who put their names for the upcoming draft. Currently, Pakistan is planning to play the three-match ODI series against the Afghanistan team in August.
