Middlesex Women’s one-day captain Naomi Dattani leads the list of four players that London Spirit have revealed as their first domestic signings for The Hundred.

Dattani will team up with England captain Heather Knight, Freya Davies, Tammy Beaumont and Deandra Dottin, as well as Hampshire's Charlie Dean and Surrey duo Aylish Cranstone and Hannah Jones.

And Knight likes the look of the squad so far, saying: "I think we've brought in some really good players. All of them have done well across the Kia Super League and that's a good test of someone's talent.

You may also want to watch:

"Aylish and Naomi both offer something different with their left-arm and Charlie is a good, young bowler who I've seen little bits of during her time in the England pathway.

"Hannah has obviously got experience of captaining Surrey, which is a bonus, and when you combine our domestic players with our international ones you can begin to see the London Spirit squad takinng shape - and that's exciting."

The Hundred women's competition begins on July 22, with the men's competition starting earlier on July 17.
