The Hundred is a cricket tournament with recently conceptualized format including eight city-based teams from the United Kingdom participating in it. These eight teams are based in Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Cardiff, Southampton and London, which will have two teams. The tournament was originally envisioned as a Twenty20 tournament but with competitions of Twenty20 format already prevailing, England Cricket Board (ECB) decided to shorten the format to attract new fans.
