Michael Vaughan on his love for The Hundred

The second season of The Hundred starts tonight and will be big for the likes of Jason Roy. This is an opportunity for him to go and show everyone how good he is. He has had a string of poor performances for England but he is an exceptional player and I would be amazed if he didn’t find the form. Likewise Liam Livingstone didn’t really shoot and Jos Buttler needs a score or two.

Anyone with a good Hundred could find themselves selected for the seven-game T20 tour in Pakistan and then, potentially, the T20 World Cup in October and November. Of course if Phil Salt starts hitting him in all parts and gets a couple of hundred, I think England would consider changing their white ball team.

I am led to believe that most of the Hundred games are sold out. You are hoping for good weather, drama and some ball ending to build some social media presence. It will take a while to match all the tight matches and wins from losing positions during this year’s T20 Blast. Personally I’m looking forward to the competition. Always create debate. People don’t seem to accept that the format has arrived and that it will be here for a long time.

Just have fun – it’s bat and ball for over 22 yards.

Have a good evening

And welcome to coverage of the Hundred Season 2 Opening Match, a men’s match between last year’s inaugural champions Southern Brave, based at Ageas Bowl, and Cardiff’s Tan Cymreig / Welsh Fire. Despite all the tickets sold in 2021, the liveliness of the show and the coverage, the road to the Lord’s final was not the road to Damascus for its many critics. Virtually none of the hostilities the Hundreds wreaked between those same clothes in the flag of tradition when England and Wales’ first foray into franchise competition was announced has been distilled from its first season, but some opinions have changed. This author started out as a skeptic, went to three games on his own initiative and took family members who had never been to a game before, and came back impressed if not a format fanatic.

But then it’s not the format that matters particularly to me, but the competitiveness of the game, the excellence of the game and the desire for cricket to convert an audience that has been denied access to the free-to-air game for 17 short-sighted years. charm. We have to find a way to address cricket’s absence from the shared national experience and wilderness that state school sport has become for the game and in this quest I am making it a point, as Sir Arnold Bax advised, to try every experience. once, except incest and folk dances.

Having just said that format doesn’t matter, it’s so unusual, at least superficially, that I’d have to scroll through the basics:

  • Each side has 100 balls to tackle and deliver with each inning which should last no more than 65 minutes.

  • Ten balls will be thrown from each end and the referee will signal after the first set of five to allow the captain to decide whether the pitcher should persevere and throw a full 10 or switch to another pitcher. Each bowler will be allowed a maximum of 20 deliveries in the match.

  • If a batter is caught out, the new batter will tackle the next ball regardless of whether his predecessor crossed with the non-attacker.

  • The powerplay lasts 25 balls and during that time only two defenders can be placed outside the 30-yard circle and each bowling team is allowed a two-minute break during which the coach is allowed to take the field to discuss tactics with. their players.

  • Contrary to pre-tournament rumors, lbw has not been abolished nor will wide shots be punished with free shots.

  • If a team is unable to throw the last five balls of the inning within 65 minutes, one less defender will be allowed outside the restricted fielding area.

  • No drink breaks are allowed.

  • Each team will be allowed a maximum of one failed DRS review per inning

On the two teams for the opening game, watch out for last year’s Braves champion big hitter James Vince, Quinton de Kock and Alex Davies, as well as their star bowling lineup, including Jake Lintott’s Hen’s Left Wrist Crow’s Teeth English- spin and brave George Garton and Chris Jordan.

The Welsh Fire do not have their captain Jonny Bairstow on hand after all as he retired to take a break after 12 international games with the white ball and four tests so far this summer, but they have their best hitter from last year, Ben Duckett. , who was second only to the phenomenal Liam Livingstone in plundering the slopes, and to big hitters Tom Banton, Joe Clarke and David Miller. Australian Adam Zampa will face off against his partner Marcus Stoinis and Naseem Shah, who has Dennis Lillee-like bowling action like anyone I’ve seen in 40 years, to deliver pace like (Welsh) fire.
