Sarah Glenn and Sophie Munro will both return to Lord's with London Spirit, while Kathryn Bryce and Marie Kelly have been retained by Manchester Originals and Northern Superchargers respectively.

Sciver-Brunt, the No.1 ranked batter in women’s ODI cricket, said: “I’m really pleased to be retained by Trent Rockets again this year. Trent Bridge is a great place to play cricket and the Rockets fans always turn the stadium yellow in their support for us. We've got the motivation to get back in the qualification spots and, with a similar squad and the additions still to come, we're confident we can do that.”
