The hundred

It does exactly what it says on the tin. If it's not about football then it belongs in here for discussion. Once again we ask that you respect your fellow posters.

I was looking at getting tickets for the last of the home games against London Spirit a few days ago because the first 3 were already sold out & the 4th was saying on sale soon. Looked the following day & that was sold out too!
Unbelievable, I was at Silverstone for the GP & there were 140K there, then we have a max of 3K in Sophia Gardens, makes no sense.

This reduced capacity isn't helping this format.

I can't get into it at all.

The teams are false and have no identity. The logos are laughable.

Stop being a snob dicky, you're up there with those test match snobs who look down on 50 overs and T20 formats of the game... Like music record snobs, wine snobs, coffee snobs

Some aspects are a bit gimmicky but I've been enjoying it, if you like T20 cricket then it's not that different really.
Having to bring an extra fielder into the ring at the end of the innings as a penalty for a slow over rate should be adopted for T20's & 50 over matches.

Some of the players aren't exactly box office are they though?

There were quite a few pull outs, especially from the Women's tournament. Don't forget that Warner and Smith were meant to be playing too.

It'll be worse now that the likes of Stokes, Bairstow and Buttler are off to the England squad for the India series.

The fact players are pulling out is a shambles.

Not hundred related but the start of the Royal London One Day Cup match between Sussex Sharks and Kent Spitfires at Hove has been delayed on Health and Safety grounds due to strong winds, can't remember that happening before 🤔

Thank goodness proper cricket starts again on Wednesday.

Tonights game was brilliant entertainment for the cricket fan, Chris Jordan is a class act bowling at the death.
