The Hundred competition was the latest format in the game of cricket, where a team is allowed to play only 100 balls in an innings and with a few more interesting rules. The Trent Rockets is one of the eight franchise in the competition, which is based on the city of Nottingham. This cricket team represents three famous county cricket clubs: Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire, and Leicestershire in the tournament.
The team is full of international stars, like Rashid Khan, Joe Root, Alex Hales, Colin Munro, and many more. The franchise announced former Zimbabwe cricketer Andy Flower as the coach of the men’s team. While Salliann Beams is the head coach of the women’s side.
Hard-hitting English batter Lewis Gregory is leading the men’s side. While Nat Sciver is the captain of the women’s team in the competition. Both the men’s and women’s sides play at their home ground, which is the Trent Bridge.
Trent Rockets: Complete Squad
The franchise tried to pick a few of the explosive batters in the draft but couldn’t succeed. They tried for Tom Banton and Quionton De Kock, but in the end, they could only get Tom Kohler-Cadmore on their side. However, they also signed Colin Munro, and he will also be available for the entire season. The Trent Rockets also signed Ian Cockbain, who might not open the innings because there is a little speculation that Joe Root will open. Luke Fletcher was the final player who got into the team.
Speaking of their performances, the Rockets did a decent job last season. The men’s team ended the season in third place with five wins out of eight matches. On the other hand, the women’s side finished in seventh place with three wins and four defeats.
Dawid Malan, Joe Root, Tom Kohler-Cadmore, Lewis Gregory, Colin Munro, Rashid Khan, Luke Fletcher, Ian Cockbain, Alex Hales, Matt Carter, Sam Cook, Marchant de Lange, Tom Moores, Steven Mullaney, Samit Patel, Luke Wood.
