Country-Wise Overseas Participants in Women’s Hundred 2022

The all-new 100-ball tournament, The Hundred last summer had its first edition get underway which turned out to be a very successful launch by the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB). The success of the tournament wasn’t just to do with numbers be it of the viewership or the money coming in, but in a wider sense with the growth of women’s cricket. The tournament’s 2nd edition is all set to get underway tomorrow with the clash between Oval Invincibles vs Northern Superchargers.
