The inaugural edition of the unique cricket tournament is ready to rock the fraternity this Summers. Notably, the event was planned for 2016 but after multiple disagreements within England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB), it had to be halted.
After the vast number of votes counted in favor of the tournament which differs from the exiting cricketing contests, the ECB inspiringly gave a green signal to launch The Hundred. It was set to begin in 2020 but the threatening health scenarios amidst COVID suspended all sporting events.
