The second season of the England Cricket Board’s The Hundred League will begin on 03 August 2022. The first match of The Hundred mens League will be played between Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire. This league is very much discussed its different rules. In this, an innings of the match will be of only 100 balls. There are 8 women’s teams and 8 men’s teams participating in the league.
In the tournament, an over will not be of six balls but of 5 balls and the bowler can also bowl two consecutive overs simultaneously. The umpire will indicate through the white card that the bowler has bowled 5 balls and now the next five balls of the next over will be bowled. However, the bowler will also have to get approval from the captain for this.
A bowler can bowl only four overs. One can bowl 5-5 balls in four bars or 10-10 balls in two bars.
Different white Kookaburra balls will be used in both the innings of a match.
The powerplay in this league will be of 25 balls i.e. 5 overs. During this, only two players will also be outside the circle of 20 yards.
The fielding team will also be allowed to take a strategic timeout of 2 minutes. It can be taken anytime. In case of no ball, instead of one run, two runs will be given. Not only this, the toss of the match will be held at the DJ stand.
The old batter will not be able to take the strike even if the crease is changed during the catch out. Only a new batter will come on strike.
To eliminate the problem of slow over rate in this league, a rule has been brought which is being discussed a lot. According to the playing condition, if the over rate of the teams is slow, then the team will have to put an additional player within the circle of 30 yards as a penalty. If this happens, then the batting team will take advantage of it a lot. With an extra player within 30 yards, the batters will be able to take more risks and the team will reach the big score.
If the match is tied in the group stage, one point will be divided between both the teams. There will be a five-ball match in the eliminator and the final match. If there is a ‘Super Five’ tie, then there will be another 5-5 ball match. If this match is also a tie, then the team that tops the group stage will be declared the winner.
