As per the Hundred 2023 schedule for the women's competition, Trent Rockets and Southern Brave are set to face each other in the opening match of the tournament on Tuesday, August 1.

The Hundred Men's competition

The Rockets are the defending champions after they defeated the Manchester Originals by two wickets in the final last year at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. Sam Cook became the Player of the Match after he finished with figures of 20-11-18-4.

Cook will also play for the Rockets this year. Apart from him, the Rockets also have a strong squad at their disposal. Alex Hales and Dawid Malan have played plenty of match-winning knocks for England and their county teams. Their role is going to hold a lot of importance.

Joe Root is not a typical dasher, but can accumulate runs even in the shorter formats. Colin Munro is another batter who can take apart the best of batting lineups. Rashid Khan recently won the Major League Cricket (MLC) after MI New York beat the Seattle Orcas in the final. Daniel Sams, Lewis Gregory, Samit Patel, Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Tom Moores are some of their most experienced cricketers.

The Brave also have some genuine match-winners in their ranks. Finn Allen and James Vince are most likely to open the batting. Vince was in excellent form while playing for Hampshire in the T20 Blast 2023. Tim David recently played some stupendous knocks for MI New York in the MLC and will be confident.

George Garton and Tymal Mills are expected to lead their bowling attack. Mills is a veteran of the format and a lot will depend on him if the Brave are to go deep in the tournament. Devon Conway did not quite have the best of times while playing for the Texas Super Kings in the MLC and will want to make amends soon.

Apart from the Rockets and the Brave, Welsh Fire, Manchester Originals, London Spirit, Oval Invincibles, Northern Superchargers and Birmingham Phoenix are the other teams that will be participating in the competition from August 1 to 27.

The Originals have one of the best T20 batters, Jos Buttler, who is capable of putting the best bowlers to the sword. Buttler has been exceptional for England and did well for Lancashire in the T20 Blast. He is likely to open the batting with Phil Salt, who has also been an essential part of the English T20I team.

The Phoenix has the likes of Ben Duckett and Liam Livingstone. Duckett recently played beautifully for England in the Ashes 2023. Livingstone, on the other hand, is an explosive batter who can hit sixes at will. Livingstone can also be a team’s man with the golden arm as he keeps chipping on with wickets.

Shadab Khan did well for Sussex and contributed heavily for the San Francisco Unicorns in MLC 2023. The team also has the likes of Adam Milne, Moeen Ali, Ben Howell, Chris Woakes and Henry Brookes.

The Superchargers have the likes of Ben Stokes and Harry Brook, who both played in the recent Ashes 2023. Brook is an aggressive batter, who has been impressive in the last couple of years. Stokes recently played an absolute blinder in the Lord’s Test, although it came in a losing cause. His role for the Superchargers will also be crucial.

Wayne Parnell, Ollie Robinson, Reece Topley and Adil Rashid also bring in a lot of experience. Bas de Leede played a key role for the Netherlands in the World Cup 2023 Qualifiers in Zimbabwe. He will be looking to carry his form in the Hundred Men’s tournament.

The Invincibles have two of the most powerful strikers of the ball in Jason Roy and Will Jacks, who both are expected to bat in the top order. Sunil Narine, who is also a clean striker of the ball, is also someone who can be looked at as an option for opening the batting. Sam Billings and Heinrich Klaasen will bat in the middle order. Klaasen has been in stupendous form in recent times, having also scored a hundred for the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium.

Ihsanullah won the Emerging Player of PSL 2023 after which made his Pakistan debut in the T20I series against Afghanistan. Adam Zampa and Danny Briggs are also experienced campaigners. London Spirit have Zak Crawley, who was in scintillating form in the Ashes. They also have Mark Wood, who recently rattled the Australian batters with his raw pace. Daniel Bell-Drummond has been in brilliant form in county cricket.

Welsh Fire have two of the most lethal bowlers going around in world cricket. Shaheen Shah Afridi and Haris Rauf are forces to be reckoned with. If both fire together, opposition batters cannot afford to sit back and relax. Jonny Bairstow and Glenn Phillips are prolific run-scorers and they need to step up. Ollie Pope, Stevie Eskinazi and Roelof van der Merwe are also crucial parts of the team.

As per the Hundred Men’s 2023 schedule, 7 venues, Trent Bridge in Nottingham, Sophia Gardens in Cardiff, Lord’s Cricket Ground in London, Headingley in Leeds, The Rose Bowl in Southampton, Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, Kennington Oval in London will host the matches over the next four weeks.

Going by the Hundred schedule for Men's 2023 edition, 32 matches in the league stage will take place from August 1 to August 24. Thereafter, the Eliminator is scheduled to take place on August 26 at the KIA Oval in London. The Lord’s will host the final on August 27 as per The Hundred 2023 schedule.

The team finishing on top of the table will directly advance to the final as per the Hundred Men’s 2023 schedule. The teams finishing second and third in the points table will fight it out for the other berth in the final.

The Hundred Women's competition

The Brave finished as the runners-up last season after losing to champions Oval Invincibles by five wickets in the final at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground. The Brave have Smriti Mandhana, who is among the four Indians to take part in the women’s edition of the tournament.

Mandhana has played for the Brave before and should not take time before getting on to her groove. She recently played well in the ODI and T20I series against Bangladesh. Earlier this year, Mandhana also plied her trade for the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the inaugural edition of the Women’s Premier League (WPL).

Jemimah Rodrigues will play for the Northern Superchargers in the tournament. The young Indian batter was not a part of the team for the upcoming season. But injury to Australia all-rounder Heather Graham meant that the Indian cricketer had to be roped in.

Rodrigues was among the top run-scorers in the inaugural edition of the Hundred two years ago. She played for them even last year, but ended up missing most of the season due to injury. Earlier this year, she also impressed while playing for the Delhi Capitals in the WPL.

Harmanpreet Kaur, the Indian Women’s skipper, is set to play for the Trent Rockets in the upcoming edition of the Hundred Women. Harmanpreet has already reached the United Kingdom (UK) and uploaded a video on her Instagram handle where she urged the fans to follow the Rockets.

Harmanpreet was a part of the Manchester Originals in the first season of the Hundred Women. She is the only Indian woman to score a hundred in T20Is and hence, a lot will be expected of her in the tournament. With the likes of Nat Sciver-Brunt, Katherine Sciver-Brunt, Lizelle Lee and Alana King in their ranks, the Rockets are expected to pose a threat to their opponents.

Harmanpreet, in the meantime, will be looking to be at her best after all the controversies she was involved in on the tour of Bangladesh. After the third ODI that ended in a tie, Harmanpreet lashed out at the umpires for ‘pathetic’ decision making.

She also irked Bangladesh skipper Nigar Sultana Joty, who said that the Indian captain could have shown more manners. Thereafter, Harmanpreet was handed a two-match ban by the International Cricket Council (ICC). She was also fined 75 percent of her match fees.

Young Indian wicketkeeper Richa Ghosh will play for the London Spirit, the very franchise all-rounder Deepti Sharma once used to be a part of. She has been a revelation for the Women in Blue in limited-overs cricket due to her ability to hit the big shots in the hour of need.

Richa also played for the RCB Women in the inaugural WPL. In the Spirit, she will have Heather Knight as her skipper. Richa and Knight played together for RCB earlier this year. Amelia Kerr is among the most talented all-rounders in world cricket. She was also a part of the WPL-winning Mumbai Indians team. Grace Harris is a powerful striker of the ball and her role in the middle-order is going to hold a lot of importance for the Spirit.

The Spirit also have United States of America (USA) pacer Tara Norris, who made history in March 2023 by becoming the first bowler with a WPL five-wicket haul. Sarah Glenn and Charlie Dean are also key members of the London team.

Deandra Dottin used to play for the Spirit, but will now turn up for the Manchester Originals. Dottin has already retired from international cricket, but she is expected to fire in the Hundred Women. Apart from Dottin, the Originals will depend heavily on South African batter Laura Wolvaardt, England’s Emma Lamb and Sophie Ecclestone and Australian leg-spinner Amanda Jade Wellington.

Australia’s Ellyse Perry and Alyssa Healy would not be a part of the team after Cricket Australia (CA) pulled them out of the tournament. Healy sustained a finger injury in the second ODI of the Women’s Ashes. Perry, on the other hand, is suffering from an injury on her left knee and need around four to six weeks to return to full fitness.

Even as Healy was set to play for the Northern Superchargers, Perry was picked for play for the Birmingham Phoenix. Perry recently became the first woman with 6000 runs and 300 plus wickets in international cricket.

Although the Phoenix would not have the services of Perry, they still have some big names in the form of Sophie Devine, Amy Jones and Issy Wong. Earlier this year, Wong played for the Mumbai Indians (MI) and etched her name into the books of history by becoming the first bowler to pick up a hat-trick.  

As per the Hundred 2023 Schedule, defending champions Oval Invincibles are scheduled to get their campaign underway on Wednesday, August 2 against the London Spirit at the Lord’s Cricket Ground, the Home of Cricket. The Invincibles will be captained by all-rounder Dane van Niekerk, who retired from international cricket earlier this year.

Van Niekerk was also a part of the RCB team in WPL 2023, but did not get a chance to play in the presence of Megan Schutt, Ellyse Perry, Heather Knight, and Sophie Devine. She has been a part of the Invincibles since the inaugural season back in 2021.

Her partner and veteran South African all-rounder Marizanne Kapp, will also play for the Invincibles. Like Van Niekerk, even Kapp has been a part of the Invincibles for the first season. The Invincibles also have Alice Capsey and Mady Villiers, two of the finest youngsters in English women’s cricket.

Capsey played for the Capitals in the WPL alongside the likes of Rodrigues, Kapp and Jess Jonassen. In the Invincibles, she will also get to rub shoulders with the evergreen Suzie Bates.

Chloe Tryon, Danni Wyatt, Anya Shrubsole, Sophia Dunkley, Lauren Winfield and Hayley Matthews are among the other big names, who will be a part of the Hundred Women.

Going by the Hundred 2023 Schedule, 32 matches will take place in the league stage of the tournament. The KIA Oval in London will host the Eliminator on Saturday, August 26, going by the Hundred 2023 Schedule.

The Lord’s Cricket Ground will host the grand finale on Sunday, August 27 as per the Hundred 2023 Schedule.

Apart from Lord’s and Nottingham, Sophia Gardens in Cardiff, Sophia Gardens in Cardiff, The Rose Bowl in Southampton, Emirates Old Trafford in Manchester, and the Edgbaston in Birmingham are the other venues for the tournament.
