On Thursday, key players of respective cities for The Hundred were announced

The summer of 2020 will see a new format being introduced by England, The Hundred. A new 100 ball competition will take centerstage to further change the way cricket is played and consumed by the fans. Seven cities (Birmingham, Cardiff, Leeds, London (two teams), Manchester, Nottingham, Southampton) eight teams will be fighting for glory for their city.

Each team will bat and bowl for 100 balls, five or 10 at a time. One bowler will have up to 20 chances per game. The fielding side will get a 150-second timeout according to their discretion. 

Here’s a list of the First Players who were named to be a part of The Hundred men’s as well as Women’s teams. Jofra Archer, Eoin Morgan, Chris Woakes, Sam Curran, Jonny Bairstow, Laura Marsh, and Heather Knight were some of the prominent stars that featured in the list.
