The Hundred is England Cricket Board’s latest innovation, and sees eight men’s and women’s teams competing in an exciting new 100-ball format. Bowlers are allowed to bowl either five or ten consecutive deliveries, with each bowler delivering a maximum of 20 deliveries. Both men’s and women’s matches are held back-to-back in the same venue, with equal prize money for the winners.
Trent Rockets and Oval Invincibles are the defending men’s and women’s champions respectively.
