Worcestershire will have a representative in this year's The Hundred after the in-form but currently injured Jack Haynes was snapped up by the Oval Invincibles.

21-year-old Haynes is the domestic wildcard pick for the 2022 campaign during August and will join the likes of Jason Roy, Sam and Tom Curran, Sunil Narine and Sam Billings.

Haynes has enjoyed a successful season for Worcestershire Rapids in the Vitality Blast, topping the batting averages with 235 runs with a strike rate of 146.87 before missing the last five matches through injury.

He follows in the footsteps of current teammates Dillon Pennington and Pat Brown, who played for the Birmingham Phoenix last summer.

"I have learnt so much playing for Worcestershire this season off a top-class international player in Azhar Ali," said Haynes.

"Now, I have the opportunity to gain experience with several leading international players in The Hundred in a hugely exciting and challenging competition.

"It is a great challenge, and hopefully, I will gain invaluable knowledge from the experience, which will benefit Worcestershire and me when I return for an exciting end to the season in the LV=Insurance County Championship."

The Invincibles, who represent the counties of Surrey and Kent, finished fourth in the inaugural competition in 2021.
