The Hundred is the title of a professional 100-ball cricket tournament in England and Wales run by the ECB commencing in July 2020. The league will consist of eight city-based franchise teams, each of which will field both a men’s and women’s team. 100-ball cricket is a form of limited overs cricket, played by two teams each playing a single innings made up of 100 balls.
English franchise Twenty20 competition (Format)
- 100 balls per innings
- A change of ends after 10 balls
- Bowlers deliver either five or 10 consecutive balls
- Each bowler can deliver a maximum of 20 balls per game
- Each bowling side gets a strategic timeout of up to two and a half minutes
- A 25-ball power play start for each team
- Two fielders are allowed outside of the initial 30-yard circle during the power play
- Teams will be able to call timeouts, as has been the case in the Indian Premier League since 2009
- A simplified scoreboard is also proposed
There will be eight city-based teams competing for the title over a 38-day period during the school summer holidays, which run from mid-July to early September. Each team will play four matches at home and four matches away (thereby playing their closest rival twice in a format similar to the Big Bash League), which means there will be a total of 32 games in the league that precedes the playoffs.
The playoff system will include the top four teams at the conclusion of the league stage and will be similar to the format used in the Indian Premier League, known as the Page playoff system. Under this system, the top two teams play each other with the winner progressing to the final, while the loser plays off against the winner of a match played between the teams that finished third and fourth in the league for the second spot in the final.
Each team is to be made up of fifteen players, of which a maximum of three could be overseas players. Players will be signed using a draft system common in other franchise leagues. Two of the fifteen players will come from players that performed well in the t20 Blast. At least one England Test player will be signed to each of the eight men’s teams competing in The Hundred
