Bangladesh ace-allrounder Shakib al Hasan remained unpicked in The Hundred competition's draft who was in the highest category of base price of £125,000.

Apart from Shakib, five other Bangladeshi cricketers Taskin Ahmed, Nasum Ahmed, Soumya Sarkar, Afif Hossain Dhrubo, and Liton Das were also loomed by the franchise.
Liton's base price in the draft was estimated at £75,000, Afif £40000, while the remaining three cricketers Nasum, Taskin and Soumya did not have any fixed base value.
There were also some big names in the world of cricket who went unsold. The likes of Trent Boult, Kieron Pollard, Andre Russell, Babar Azam, Mohammad Rizwan were among the top-bracket overseas stars to be overlooked along with Shakib.
Pakistan's Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf and Ihsanullah got the team in The Hundred. Shaheen who won the PSL title for Lahore Qalandars will play for Wales Fire.
The 100-ball tournament is set to be played from August 1-27. In the men's contest last year, Trent Rockets won the title after defeating Manchester Originals in the final match.
