Here's how to find The Hundred 2022 live stream online from anywhere, with the tournament coming to a close both the men's and women's finals are available on free-to-watch BBC Two (stream on BBC iPlayer) on Saturday, 3 September from 2.30 pm. 

The women's final is first at 2.30 pm and sees the Southern Braves take on the Oval Invincibles (top of the group). In the men's final at 6 pm, it's the Trent Rockets vs Manchester Originals (who beat Eoin Morgan's London Spirit in Friday's Eliminator).

The Hundred has provided wonderful entertainment so far. There's been some ridiculously big hitting, farcical runouts, wonderful catches, great weather, and huge crowds.

It's fair to say it's been a huge success this year so far and we're even willing to forgive them the terrible scoreboard...

What are The Hundred rules?

Listen up, here are the rules of the new cricket format:

  • Each innings lasts 100 balls — the team with the most runs wins!
  • Bowlers bowl five balls at a time but can bowl ten consecutive deliveries.
  • Each bowler can bowl a maximum of 20 balls.
  • Each team has a powerplay at the start of their innings, which lasts for 25 balls. Only two fielders are allowed on the boundary.
  • The fielding team can call a strategic timeout of 90 seconds. The coaches can then come and give tactical advice.

Are there overs in The Hundred?

Yes, but not the traditional six-ball overs you get in cricket normally. Instead, it's easier to think of them as being five-ball overs with the other difference being that a bowler can bowl two five-ball sets in a row.

That's the key tactical change, you can keep a bowler doing well on for 10 balls. However, in reality, most of the time bowlers are just bowling their five balls.
