The format

There will be eight group games in the men’s competition with each team playing six other sides once and their nearest regional rivals twice.

Manchester Originals and Northern Superchargers will play each other twice, with the other double-header derbies London Spirit vs Oval Invincibles, Trent Rockets vs Birmingham Phoenix and Southern Brave vs Welsh Fire.

Due to women’s cricket’s involvement in the Commonwealth Games, there will be six group games in the women’s competition, meaning some sides will not meet at this stage.

The sides that finish top in the group stage will advance directly to Finals Day and face the winners of The Hundred Eliminator between the teams finishing second and third.

The Eliminators will be held at The Ageas Bowl in Southampton on Friday, September 2, a day before the finals.

A reserve day is available on Sunday, September 4 should Saturday’s finals be adversely affected by the weather.
