In the women’s competition there will be six group games only – due to the women’s cricket’s involvement in the Commonwealth Games – meaning some sides will not meet in the group stages.
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 2 September.
Finals Day is at Lord’s on Saturday 3 September with matches at 3pm and 6.30pm.
A reserve day is available on Sunday 4 September should that be required due to adverse weather on Finals Day.

LONDON SPIRIT ONES TO WATCH
Australian Beth Mooney, is a superb run-scorer and excellent keeper. The Australian, named as the leading women’s cricketer in 2020, is sure to figure prominently for London spirit women as they go in search of The Hundred silverware. Meanwhile Freya Davies will ensure Spirit have a potent bowling attack. Davies made her debut for Sussex in a T20 clash at just 14 years old and her 19 Kia Super League wickets in 2019 is a competition record. Watch out too for Naomi Dattani. The Londoner, who has been in great form for Sunrisers, can score quickly with the bat as well as contribute to the bowling with left-arm medium pace.
London spirit men are captained by Eoin Morgan. The England’s Men’s Cricket World Cup winning captain. Morgan hit a world record 17 sixes vs Afghanistan and is England’s leading One-Day International run-scorer. He got the second highest total amount of runs for London Spirit in 2021 with 151. Glen Maxwell is another batter who can pile on the runs, while also being an outstanding fielder and useful spin bowler. Jordan Thompson performed superbly for Surrey in the T20 Blast this year for Yorkshire helping them to Finals Day. Thompson is one of the quickest bowlers in this year’s competition, while with the bat he is capable of getting runs on the scoreboard at a rapid rate.
