THE HUNDRED: Isa Guha talks the return of cricket!
Twelve months later than planned - The Hundred is back!
Over the next 32 days, the men's and women's competitions will run side-by-side with eight brand new teams, featuring many of the world's best players, competing to reach the finals on 21 August at Lord's.
The Hundred has split opinion throughout its build-up but promises to be cricket as the UK has never seen it before.
The Hundred is English cricket's attempt to grow the game by attracting a younger, more diverse audience.
It is the same sport but played in a new, shorter format which organisers hope will be easier to follow - each team batting for 100 balls and attempting to score as many runs as possible.
Eight city-based teams have been created - London Spirit, Oval Invincibles, Southern Brave, Welsh Fire, Birmingham Phoenix, Trent Rockets, Manchester Originals and Northern Superchargers - with each having picked two squads of 15 domestic and international players - one men's and one women's.
Isa Guha will lead the coverage, and will be joined by Phil Tufnell and Michael Vaughan on commentary. Carlos Braithwaite and Heather Knight will also give insight and analysis.
James Anderson, Greg James, and Felix White, who present the Tailenders podcast, will also be involved in the coverage, giving an alternative take on proceedings. Players Alex Hartley, Tymal Mills, Lauren Winfield Hill, Steven Finn and Heather Knight will be giving their insight directly from the pitch.
