Can ‘The Hundred’ Tournament be Successful like IPL?

In IPL/T20 cricket every bowler gets to bowl a total of 4 overs which means 24 balls. In this new format, bowlers can bowl 5 or 10 consecutive deliveries while in IPL bowlers can only deliver 6 balls consecutively. For batsmen, the game remains more or less the same as in other T20 leagues.

One of the best changes that we see in ‘100-ball’ matches is the presence of coaches on the ground. They can come out on the ground and discuss strategies with the players anytime during the game.

8 teams currently consist of some great coaches; Mahela Jayawardene, Daniel Vettori, Ben Sawyer, Paul Shaw, and many other talented individuals.

When it comes to the structure this new tournament is slightly different from IPL. In a total of 32 matches, each team plays four matches on home ground and the rest matches away.

Men’s and Women’s games are held on the same ground on the same day. Apart from this, the rest remains similar. The top teams from both Men’s and Women’s go straight to the finals and the remaining second and third teams compete for their position.

In their latest season held in 2022, Trent Rockets Men and Oval Invincibles Women won the title.

Although men’s salary remains four times higher than female cricketers, it was declared by ‘The Hundred’ during the first season that the prize money of £600,000 would be split equally among both men and women winners to bring down gender discrimination.
