The Hundred Free Bets and New Customer Sign-Up Offers
One of the new innovations within the 2021 season in England was the introduction of the Hundred. A 100-ball a side competition, that drew its fair share of critics, particularly from the prawn sandwich brigade that enjoy attritional cricket at all times.

However, with free-to-air television coverage and a range of promotions to entice a whole new generation of fans to the game of cricket, the reception the Hundred received has generally been positive. Not to mention, the serious sums of money some of the biggest players in the world are being paid to blast a few balls round in the UK for the summer and once again in 2022, the Hundred looks set to grow even bigger and better.

There look to have been plenty of big money moves in the Hundred draft ahead of the season but once again, there are the usual host of flagship names all taking part in the 2022 edition of the Hundred.
Southern Brave are the defending champions, having overcome a relatively inauspicious start to emerge victorious over the Birmingham Phoenix in the final and both sides should be front runners again this season.
Joe Root will be carrying the hopes of the well backed Trent Rockets this season, whilst the Oval Invincibles will be keen to showcase their talents once more in the capital. Two sides that will be looking for improved showings will be the Northern Superchargers and Welsh Fire, who both perhaps underachieved a little last season.
The Manchester Originals have refreshed their squad significantly, giving them the look of a dark horse in the competition this season, whilst London Spirit will be looking to pay homage to their coach and legend of the game, Shane Warne, who passed away in the off season and they too could cause some damage in 2022.

Whilst the advent of the men’s Hundred competition was initially met with confusion and some derision in parts, the introduction of the Hundred to the women’s game looks to have revolutionised it moving forward.
Increased audiences, prize money and wages look to have impacted on the game on a global scale and some of the biggest names within the women’s game will ply their trade in the UK this summer. Schedulers also opted to play two games at every fixture last season (one women’s and one men’s), a format that has been tweaked for 2022 but with huge crowds guaranteed once more – the game is clearly on the up.
The Oval Invincibles had way too much for the Southern Brave in the 2021 final but both sides have strengthened ahead of 2022 and they should both be front runners once more. Elsewhere, both the London Spirit and the Trent Rockets had seasons to build on last term and with some shrewd additions, both domestically and internationally, both sides look better placed to sustain an assault this season.
Birmingham Phoenix were a side that impressed in patches last term, and they should develop further in 2022 and the same could be said about the Northern Superchargers.
Perhaps the two sides with the most to do ahead of the 2022 season are the Manchester Originals and the Welsh Fire but the margins in the Hundred are so finite, that they could well get on a roll and be battling it out for the title at the end of the campaign.
