As something a bit different for Cricket Yorkshire readers, now the regular club cricket season has drawn to a close, I thought I’d put together a few thoughts on The Hundred; the new 8-team, city-based professional tournament coming to England & Wales in 2020.
Unless you’ve been on another solar system, you will have a view on The Hundred.
It could be ‘I’d rather walk over hot coals than support The Northern Superchargers’ or ‘I am a great fan of crisps and feel a real affinity with this competition.’
In a new 20-minute episode for the Cricket Yorkshire Podcast, I’ve assembled a few of the arguments that are front of mind and I’d welcome your views on social media, once you’ve had a listen.
So, The Hundred: 100 balls of innovation, excitement and a means to attract new audiences to the game or unnecessary abomination?
