The Hundred ball tournament is one that is fresh, entertaining and new. The format was brought in to engage the young audiences in England. It is faster than the T20 format and the result can be known in a few hours. The specialty of the format is that the game is played in terms of balls and not overs and also the good thing about the hundred is that it helps both the batters and the bowlers.
The Hundred also has parity in terms of playing men’s and women’s games simultaneously or together on the same day. There are 8 men’s teams and the same 8 teams are applicable for the Women players as well.
Meanwhile, a piece of big news has come in for the upcoming edition of the Hundred to be held in England. Due to circumstances, including injury and international commitments, a small group of players have been either temporarily or permanently replaced for this year’s competition.
