James Vince said: “It’s brilliant to be back captaining the Brave this year. I love playing in front of our home fans on the south coast and we can’t wait for the competition to start.

We’ll be looking to go as far as we can and I think we have retained a strong group this year to help us with that.”

Danni Wyatt said: “Winning the competition last year was a fantastic experience and to have retained most of that group to compete this year sets us up really nicely.

I absolutely love playing for Southern Brave, and I love playing in The Hundred, and I can’t wait to get back to playing with the group at Utilita Bowl.”
