Players offered a contract for Women’s Hundred in 2020 have the option to roll over deals to 2021, England and Wales Cricket Board confirmed.
The 2020 tournament was delayed by a year because of the Coronavirus pandemic.
Those who wish to keep their contracts with their respective clubs will have the same terms next season of 2021.
“One of the things we are looking to create in women’s cricket is more job security,” England and Southern Brave bowler Anya Shrubsole told BBC Sport.
“Security is something that is not always easy to come by in women’s sport. This is the best way forward.”
Some players are allowed to terminate their contracts if they want to and those who want to remain are also allowed to keep their contracts.
They get the same payment as they would have been this year, with salaries from 3,600-15,000
Both males and females will receive same pay, without discrimination.
England women will face a five match T20 series against West Indies from Saturday, While the Rachel Heyhoe Flint Trophy is the domestic women’s competition of this season.
“Getting some women’s cricket played this summer has been huge,” Shrubsole said.
“When you combine the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy and The Hundred next year, you have two excellent competitions.”
“One prioritises performance and a year-round focus on skills, and one puts the women’s game on the big stage and attracts new fans.”
