Kathryn Bryce has been announced as one of Trent Rockets’ domestic players in The Hundred – the new 100-ball competition launched by the England & Wales Cricket Board to take place this summer.

The announcement comes after a great 2019 for Kathryn Bryce, with the 22-year-old featuring for Loughborough Lightning in the Kia Super League and finishing as the leading run-scorer in the Women’s World Twenty20 Qualifier hosted in Scotland.

Bryce averages 50 in T20 internationals for Scotland, with a high score of 73*. With the ball, she averages 9.93 in the same format, with an economy rate of just 3.27.

Kathryn sits at 14th place in the global ICC all-rounder rankings – the highest for an Associate cricketer.

Speaking of The Hundred, Kathryn Bryce said: “The Hundred is a really exciting new competition to be part of. I'm really proud to have the opportunity to be involved and I can't wait to get stuck in with it all."

Steven Knox, Head Coach of Scotland, said: “I am delighted that Kathryn has been picked up by Trent Rockets for the inaugural season of The Hundred following her superb all-round performances for both the Wildcats and Loughborough Lightning over the past twelve months.

“She is a brilliant all-round cricketer and is deservedly ranked the 14th all-rounder in the world. I expect that she'll perform superbly for the Rockets and that the experiences she has with them will benefit both her personal development and the development of the Scotland women's team moving forwards.”
