“We are so excited to help launch this fantastic new tournament this summer. It’s going to be an incredible standard of cricket played at some of the best grounds in the world and everyone’s invited.

We’ve put together an amazing line-up of presenters and commentators; there are a completely fresh graphics look and some exciting new broadcast technology. We very much hope you enjoy the coverage,” Director of Sky Sports Cricket, Bryan Henderson said.
The Hundred is a new 100-ball cricket competition that will see prominent players (both men and women) featuring in the tournament later this year in the English summer.
