JAMES Vince will interrupt his wedding weekend to find out who the rest of his Southern Brave teammates are.

The Hampshire captain was one of the first three players to be selected for the Ageas Bowl franchise, with Ashes star Jofra Archer and his Sussex teammate Chris Jordan being the other ‘Local Icon’ picks.

He is getting married this Saturday but will know the rest of the squad after the Player Draft, to be held at the Sky Sports studio in London on Sunday.

With the likes of Steve Smith and Chris Gayle available, as well as 16 other Hampshire players, he is keen to know who he will be playing alongside.

“I’m actually getting married the day before, but I’ll try and prop myself up somewhere to watch it. ” he told ageasbowl.com.

“It will be interesting to see how it plays out and who goes where.

“The format is shorter so it may be that teams want to go for more players who have batted at the top of the order for most of their career.

"In T20 you use the power hitters towards the back end, but I guess with The Hundred it will mean rather than holding those guys off until the back end, you will need to be going once the powerplay ends after 25 balls.

“Having guys that can clear the ropes and score from the word go will be vital.

“We will see because it will take a little bit of time for players to get used to the pattern of the game, but I expect some high scores. Different venues will produce different scores.

“We have quite a big ground down here at the Ageas Bowl so it will be interesting to see the different tactics involved.

“I guess there’ll be a bit of unpredictability and batsmen will feel as though they have to get on with it from ball one.”

Hampshire coach Jimmy Adams will be assisting head coach Mahela Jayawardene and Vince is relishing the opportunity to play in front of big crowds at a ground he knows so well.

“When I got the opportunity to be one of the local players here it meant a lot,” he said.

“I’ve grown up and played all of my cricket here so to be a part of something as new and exciting as The Hundred, and to do it on my home ground, is really exciting.

“The beauty of it is that because it’s a new format there is an unknown factor.”

Kyle Abbott and Rilee Rossouw have a domestic reserve price of £40,000.

There is no reserve price for Tom Alsop, Mason Crane, Liam Dawson, Aneurin Donald, Fidel Edwards, James Fuller, Ian Holland, Lewis McManus, Sam Northeast, Tom Scriven, Ryan Stevenson, Joe Weatherley, Brad Wheal and Chris Wood.

The Hundred will begin in July next year with Southern Brave one of eight city-based teams playing in the competition over a five-week period.

All eight teams in the competition will select 12 players from the pool of eligible entrants with those picked joining the England red-ball contracted players and Local Icons already announced for each side.

Following the draft each team will have the opportunity for a final ‘Wildcard’ pick, to be chosen during next year’s Vitality Blast to give eight high-performing Blast players the opportunity to join one of the teams.

Overseas stars set to feature include former Hampshire players, Chris Morris, Tabraiz Shamsi, Aiden Markram, Dale Steyn, Colin Munro, Mujeeb Ur Rahman, George Bailey, Glenn Maxwell, Shane Watson, Imran Tahir, Dan Christian, Daren Sammy and Shahid Afridi.
