After almost a year on from The Hundred Draft which was aired live on Sky, we at Park Life Sport take a look at the impact that Covid-19 has had on the England Cricket Board’s new tournament.
Due to the spread of the virus, the date was suspended until next summer. The Hundred will now launch in 2021, a 100-ball cricket competition that will “put you on the edge of your seat” according to the organisers at the ECB.
We are still waiting for all eight teams to confirm their squads for the 2021 season, but the new system in place for player selection is that teams can retain as many of their 2020 choice players as they want and the ones they don’t retain can be replaced.
Here’s what we do know about the business some teams have already announced:
Women’s retained: Amy Jones
Men’s retained: Chris Woakes
Men’s new player: Dom Sibley
Women’s retained: Deandra Dottin
