The England and Wales Cricket Board had a 100-100 ball match concept. The ECB named the league ‘The Hundred League’. ‘The Hundred League’ was to begin this year, but due to the coronavirus, the league has been postponed for a year. Not only this, but the players have also suffered a lot due to the postponement of this league, as the England Cricket Board has terminated the players’ contract.
On Thursday, the England Cricket Board postponed the league’s first season due to a coronavirus epidemic for a year. In October last year, 8 teams of ‘The Hundred League’ had drafted teams. Also, the selection of women’s teams was still in the process, but the Corona epidemic devastated everything. The ECB has given the players the information about the cancellation of the tournament and the termination of the agreement.
The England and Wales Cricket Board said in its statement, “We confirm that a letter terminating current player contracts has been issued to everyone today. This letter is to legally update the status and notify the players The required paperwork is moved to 2021 after a notification last week. “
The Hundred League, which included eight teams separately in the men’s and women’s tournaments, was to begin on July 17 and end on August 15, but will no longer be held this year.
