There have been several squad changes updated by the respective teams in the Hundred, due to injuries to various players.
Indian batter Jemimah Rodrigues has replaced injured Australian all-rounder Heather Graham in the Hundred tournament which is scheduled to start from 1st August 2023. Heather was supposed to feature for the Northern Superchargers in this year’s edition and was named in the Australian squad for the ODI series against Ireland in Ireland as well.
But Heather sustained an injury to her right calf in the latter stages of the Ashes series. Due to this, she was ruled out of the Ireland series, but now Superchargers have announced the signing of Jemimah as a replacement for Heather. Jemimah will once again feature for the Superchargers after playing for them in the Inaugural season. She was the second-highest scorer in the tournament in 2021.
Superchargers have announced one more change, as the Australian captain Alyssa Healy suffered a fracture on her already injured left index finger while keeping the wickets in Australia vs Ireland 2nd ODI. Her fellow compatriot Phoebe Litchfield will be replacing her in the Superchargers team.

Another Australian, Ellyse Perry, suffered soreness in her left knee while batting against Ireland. Perry was earlier retained by Birmingham Phoenix. The Birmingham side are yet to announce a replacement for star injured player Perry.
Welsh Fire also announced one change in their squad, with right-arm off-break bowler, Georgia Davis ruled out. England all-rounder Chloe Skelton will be replacing Davis in the squad. The 20-year-old all-rounder is an exciting talent to keep an eye on in the future.
English fast bowler, Beth Langston withdrew from the tournament owing to an injury. Scottish pacer Hannah Rainey will be the one replacing Beth in the Ovals Invincibles squad. Hannah has taken a total of 14 wickets from 25 innings for the Scottish team.
The first game of the tournament will be played by Souther Brave and Trent Rockets on 1st August 2023 at Nottingham. This year’s edition is definitely going to be fun to watch with some interesting matches being played.
