Suzie Bates and Tammy Beaumont are relishing the opportunity to feature for the Southern Vipers again this summer.
They will be joined at the Ageas Bowl by Danni Wyatt who will also play for the team in the 2019 Kia Super League.
An announcement made by the ECB put forward the allocations for the fourth year of the competition.
This confirmed England duo Beaumont and Wyatt will return to the Ageas Bowl for another season after joining the squad for the first time in 2018.

She said: ‘I’m so happy to be coming back to the Southern Vipers for my fourth season – it’s such a great place to play and I’m looking forward to contributing to the team’s success again this summer.
Beaumont, impressed during her first year with the Vipers last summer, totalling 198 runs in seven KSL matches at an average of 33 with the bat, and is delighted to have sealed her return.
She said: ‘I’m really excited to be back with the Southern Vipers for another season.
