The Hundred 2022: Pretorius, Parnell, Brewer named as replacements

image-l6jifte0Pretorius has emerged as a dependable all-rounder for South Africa

South African all-rounder Dwaine Pretorius, his fellow pacer Wayne Parnell, and England women's cricketer Chloe Brewer have been announced as replacement players for The Hundred 2022.

Welsh Fire has announced that Pretorius will come in as a replacement signing for Pakistan teenage sensation Naseem Shah, who has withdrawn from The Hundred after receiving a call-up to Pakistan's white-ball squad for the series against the Netherlands and the Asia Cup in the UAE.

Pretorius replaces Naseem at Welsh Fire

The tall all-rounder's presence will boast the pace attack of Welsh Fire, which is light on star quality, and have only a few considerable options with the likes of David Payne, Jake Ball, and George Scrimshaw. Pretorius' final match for the Welsh Fire will be against Northern Superchargers on August 26 before he will leave for the Caribbean for this year's Caribbean Premier League.

Parnell will join Northern Superchargers 

Parnell has been roped in by Northern Superchargers as a short-term replacement for seasoned all-rounder Dwayne Bravo. Bravo will be available to play for the Headingley-based side until August 21. After that, he will also head back home to take part in the CPL 2022.

Parnell's current form and the left arm angle will add value to Superchargers' bowling department.

Brewer comes in for Knight 

In the women's Hundred competition, South East Stars youngster Chloe Brewer, a batting all-rounder, will fill the boots of Heather Knight at London Spirit. 

England and London Spirit women's team skipper has been ruled out of the tournament with a hip injury and is expected to be on the sidelines for several weeks.

The 20-year-old who is yet to make an impact on the big stage has been in good run of form in domestic cricket. Although, she only made two appearances this season but impressed with knocks of 49 and 61 in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy.
