Cape Town - Several Proteas have entered the draft for the England and Wales Cricket Board's (ECB) new limited-overs tournament, The Hundred.

The 100-ball competition, starting in 2020, will see teams bat for 100 balls each with 'overs' lasting 10 deliveries. Bowlers will bowl either five or 10 balls consecutively.

There are 239 overseas players in the draft with the eight teams allowed three picks each.

Proteas fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has one of the higher reserve prices and could be snapped up for R2.39 million.

Meanwhile, national Test skipper Faf du Plessis could bank R1.9 million with the "Phalaborwa Express" Dale Steyn asking for a minimum of R1.4 million.

Lungi Ngidi, Rassie van der Dussen and Dean Elgar have no reserve prices.

In terms of Kolpak players, there are several South Africans hoping to be selected, including Morne Morkel, Kyle Abbott, Rilee Rossouw and Simon Harmer.
