The Hundred Eyes Possible Postponement

The Hundred prefers a possible delay until 2021 rather than be held behind closed doors. 

The inaugural season of The Hundred is set to run from July 15 up until August 14. The Hundred is a 100-ball competition which features eight-city based franchises. As the event will only be launched, the season features some of the best players in the world. 

The ECB had indeed worked their very best to make The Hundred possible and it is with no doubt that they would want it to be held behind closed doors. In fact, the organizers really want to give the event the success that it deserves which it may not get if it were to be pushed through this summer. 

Former England captain Michael Vaughan shared his sentiments when he said, ‘It’s a tournament which needs to be a success. The grounds need to be full. If you’re playing a new tournament without overseas players and behind closed doors, I don’t quite see the point in launching it’.

However, if things happen to get better, The Hundred may still take place in August or September. In fact, the ticket selling has also been postponed amid the COVID-19 outbreak. 

In the midst of the outbreak, the ECB also eyes a possible compression for the T20 Blast League rather than a delay in the season of the event. To further know about the T20 Blast League governed by the ECB, check out Betwala.
