ECB Approves Playing Conditions for The Hundred

The England and Wales Cricket Board has approved playing conditions for The Hundred, the new 100-ball-per-innings domestic competition, at their board meeting in London on Wednesday (November 29).

The new tournament is set to begin in 2020. A statement by the ECB confirmed that the playing conditions would include "each innings to be 100 balls, a change of end after every 10 balls and an individual bowler able to deliver either five or 10 consecutive balls with a maximum of 20 per game".

Further details about the development and implementation of the tournament will be presented in a series of meetings beginning in January next year. New structure for county tournaments and County Partnership Agreement (CPA), along the 'full strategy' for 2020-2024, will also be made clear in the upcoming meetings.

“The game has made huge progress this year, through collaboration, constructive debate and a volume of detailed discussion. The outcomes for all of this combined work are vital for the growth and sustainability of cricket, at all levels, in England and Wales," said Tom Harrison, Chief Executive Officer of the ECB.

“The strategy we have created over the last 12 months will give the whole game clear priorities and allow us to deliver these together.

“It will guide our investment, drive our relationships, and make things happen locally and nationally. The Strategy, Domestic Structure, New Competition and CPA are all interlinked so it is right that we share all the details – together and in context – at the same time across the game. This will happen in the New Year."
