The Hundred is here: The new game is a 100-ball cricket tournament, involving eight women’s and men’s teams across England and Wales’ major cities.
The competition will feature world-class players and big names from around the world. Eight brand new city-based women’s and men’s teams will compete over five weeks every summer.
A women’s squad and men’s squad will be formed for each team, with the competitions running alongside each other.
On it launch on 21 July, Liam Livingstone hit the record-fastest hundred for England across all formats, while 17-year-old Indian lightning rod Shafali Verma, has been establishing herself as a cricket star all summer, so expect fireworks at Edgbaston…
What were you doing when you were 17?
