The Hundred 2021 coaches: All eights franchises of The Hundred 2021 are being coached by former international cricketers.
Only four matches (across men’s and women’s tournament) into its inaugural season, The Hundred’s first impression is quite similar to what it intended to have done in the first place. In addition to the record-breaking TV numbers, the razzmatazz inside the stadium clearly hints at The Hundred alluring newer audiences towards cricket.
The month-long tournament is being played between eight teams namely Birmingham Phoenix, London Spirit, Manchester Originals, Northern Superchargers, Oval Invincibles, Southern Brave, Trent Rockets and Welsh Fire.
Had it not been for the COVID-19 pandemic forcing multiple overseas players to pull out of the tournament, The Hundred 2021 would have been off the mark in a much better style.
While a lot of A-list overseas cricketers have had to miss The Hundred 2021 due to various reasons, as many as eight overseas head coaches are part of the novel competition.
