Former England captain Naseer Hussain has put forward a suggestion to include top Pakistan players to grow The Hundred.

The 100-ball format launched by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) last year, where only two Pakistan players out of four were able to take part.

Mohammad Amir played for London Spirit, whole Wahab Riaz enjoyed a short stint with Welsh Fire in the inaugural edition.

Shadab Khan and Shaheen Afridi couldn't play due to commitments with the Pakistan cricket team.

However, renowned commentator Hussain is hoping to see more Pakistan players in play the tournament.

"The way to improve the Hundred is with players. I would also love to see a couple more Pakistan players come over," Naseer told Sky Sports. "I think their white-ball cricket has gone through the roof so people like Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan, Shaheen Shah Afridi, get them over as the interest among the British Asian community is growing.”

“Try and add big names, that should be the direction of this tournament," he concluded.
