The Hundred is a brand new domestic franchise tournament, and here is our guide to betting on the competition.
What Is The Hundred?
In simple terms it is a variation of cricket based on the T20 format. T20 is 120 balls, while The Hundred, is simply 100 balls.
The ECB (England and Wales Cricket Board) wanted a franchise competition to rival the IPL and Big Bash League, and came up with the idea of The Hundred.
Rather than go down the conventional route of a regular T20 franchise competition, the ECB wanted something different. And so we have The Hundred.
