What is The Hundred?

Good question - it's quite simple really.

The Hundred is a new eight-team competition that was created by the England and Wales Cricket Board with the aspiration of reaching a younger, and more diverse, audience while bringing all of the best domestic and overseas players together.

The competition was due to start in 2020, but was postponed because of the Coronavirus pandemic. The 2021 version kicked off on 21 July and will run until 21 August (there is a reserve day if rain interferes on Saturday).

The eight teams are spread across seven cities in the UK: London (London Spirit & Oval Invincibles), Manchester (Manchester Originals), Birmingham (Birmingham Phoenix), Leeds (Northern Superchargers), Nottingham (Trent Rockets), Southampton (Southern Brave) and Cardiff (Welsh Fire).
