Australia's leading cricketers are consigned to missing at least the finals of England's new competition The Hundred, with dates for a winter ODI series soon to be confirmed.

Steve Smith, David Warner, Mitchell Starc and Aaron Finch are among 10 Australians signed up for the new format, which consists of 100-ball innings.

The four stars were recruited for approximately $236,000 each, the highest price possible, at the draft for the inaugural Hundred tournament.

It is set to run from July 18 until August 16.

Australia wrap up a limited-overs tour of England on July 16, meaning they will be on deck and ready to link up with respective franchises.

Australia's ODI squad will then assemble for a home series, likely to be staged in the Northern Territory and/or northern Queensland, against Zimbabwe.

Discussions between Cricket Australia and Zimbabwe Cricket regarding that series are in the final stages.

It's possible that three-match ODI series will be marginally later in August than first planned, but there will almost certainly be some overlap with The Hundred.

CA's stance is players must report for national duty, as is the case with the Indian Premier League and any other Twenty20 competition around the world.

Smith to go back to No.3 for Australia

Qantas Tour of England - ODIs. Aussies slip to 34-year rankings low. And only a remarkable come-from-behind series win, or rain, can save them from further unwanted history; never before has an Australian side lost four consecutive bilateral series (min two matches).

Warner's manager James Erskine made headlines with some candid comments to The Age, accusing CA of scheduling "retrospectively against the Hundred" and flagging the prospect of players telling CA to reschedule the ODI series.

Warner, who has kept a low profile since returning from a year-long suspension, is yet to comment.

It's believed players were provided an update regarding the likely clash of dates following the SCG Test.

However, the clash between England's new domestic league and the Australia-Zimbabwe series was first flagged last August.

CA head of operations Peter Roach sent an email to state cricket organisations plus player managers on August 5, stating that participation in The Hundred will be "as normal ... subject to fitness and the player not being required for international duty".

"For further information, the Australian men's T20 and ODI teams will be playing matches in England just prior to The Hundred," Roach wrote at the time.

"The ODI team also has an existing FTP commitment of 3 matches in early August in Australia versus Zimbabwe."

Finch has given the issue little attention at this point, preferring to focusing on the current tour of India that started with him and Warner posting tons in a crushing 10-wicket win.

Why Steve Smith was never going to miss the chance to make BBL return .
The Aussie ace loves the BBL and says he's feeling fresh this late in the summer after watching the likes of David Warner and Marnus Labuschagne bat and bat.But even if he was weary, Smith was never going to miss the chance to make a late, late cameo for the Sydney Sixers, with his popularity proving impossible to miss on Thursday night in what was his first game back in the Big Bash since 2014.
