Isn't this effectively T20 with 20 less balls plus some daft time-out addition?

I can see how it might push the profile of women's cricket a little bit, but beyond that?

From a betting point of view, the lesson so far is that the teams are all very evenly matched so keep backing the longer priced ones.

Theres something seductive about this 100, despite it being a hotch potch of monotonous commentary, over hyped "world class" cricketers playing under 15s cricket, pathetic running between the wickets, woeful fielding, and batting that would give Sir Geoffrey Boycott palputations.

If 20/20 were free to air and marketed well then we would be watching better cricket and better overseas talent.

The only thing I would say is they are marketing to a younger demographic, children, families sand women. That is good, fair enough. Lords is looking like stopping people bringing alcohol into the ground. Also fair enough with kids and families around. Personally I would not want to watch this filth sober so it is an I’m Out from me but if you are thinking of pulling that sheite on me at Test Matches then you can sell your £90 tickets to children, families of 4 and women then good luck to you and your bar receipts!

This is a roaring success and will only get better and bigger. It's not cricket per we but you are entertained and can bet and be away in quick time.So it has its place and will give T20 plenty to ponder.
Report Whisperingdeath August 3, 2021 12:46 PM BST
It will only get bigger if sponsors keep throwing money at it.

They are targeting families, the young and women, which, is great. Do these groups have the money to continue this. The ticket prices are cheap for adults and probably ( I don't know ) cheaper for kids but after the novelty has worn off where does this go?

It really has done much better than expected but T20 is the correct format. It is really difficult for new batsmen coming to the wicket to have a thrash in this format. Great that they have challenged over 200 years of rules. I don't have a problem with that but there is a format ready to go and it just needed marketing better, money and the target audience indulged a little.

They have forgotten my generation have the sponduli'sWink

Don't misunderstand me Wd, yes T20 is the main fodder but this has challenged that in terms of time and speed and fun too.So plenty for T20 to ponder,however the 100 is more summer camp only,but it can travel and thus get bigger but not outside of each country's school summer holiday,is my guess.

seems to be an increasing issue these days sadly that market rules aren't always comprehensive enough,

Report brentford August 7, 2021 1:46 PM BST
How many runs will be scored in the listed innings? At the scheduled start time unmatched bets will be cancelled by Betfair and the market will be turned in-play. This market will not be actively managed and it is the responsibility of customers to manage their positions. Bets will stand even if the innings is shortened to less than 100 balls. This market will be settled if 25 balls have been completed in the innings, the batting team is bowled out or has reached the target to win the match. For clarification this market will be settled on the final score achieved by the batting side including any extras or penalty runs awarded during the innings, any penalty runs added to a score after the completion of an innings will not count. Competition Rules apply.

has that been adjusted since your query ?

Read this through tonight and am astounded by the negative comments.

This is a gambling website isn't it? We have a competition that has introduced daily markets with fantastic liquidity and on top of that you have slightly different rules (which are easy enough to get on top of if you put the time in) and a women's competition where half the players are unknown to the masses.

Put some effort it and this is a huge opportunity for people interested in making a profit.
Report rob999 August 7, 2021 10:42 PM BST
For Lord Skywalker - They settled the innings runs market correctly.

In innings runs markets if you get past the number of deliveries that would be the minimum to constitute a game if both teams were to bat for that number of deliveries then the market Is settled. So once 25 balls are completed in the Hundred you have a market that will be settled.

Thats not a Hundred specific rule for Betfair. That is their rule on every limited overs match innings runs market.

It would end a 128-year wait for the sport to be included, following its only previous appearance in the 1900 Games in Paris.
