After the completion of Ashes 2023, cricket fans will get to enjoy another action-packed league as The Hundred is back with its third edition. The tournament will see eight teams will compete in 32 group-stage matches. The reigning champions Trent Rockets are set to lock horns with Southern Brave in a highly anticipated season opener on August 1.
The pitch at Trent Bridge is flat and is known for providing great aid to the batters. Teams and fans can expect big scores at this venue, as the batters can expect to hit big right from the start. Not only this, but the outfield of the ground is very fast and balls travel very fast on the ground. Another notable feature of the venue is that the boundaries of the stadium are very small, enabling batters to play their dream innings at the venue.
Lewis Gregory is set to lead the team for a third consecutive season, with Andy Flower as the new coach of the team. The team retained 11 of their players from the last season after they won the final clash against Manchester Originals. Hence, the fans will get to see a similar kind of team in the third edition of the tournament. The Rockets have a batting lineup consisting of names like Alex Hales, Dawid Malan and Joe Root. Not only this, but names like Rashid Khan and Samit Patel add firepower to the bowling department.

The winners of the first season, Southern Brave finished seventh in the last season as they managed to win only three games. The team signed some good names and released a few who failed to perform well in the 2022 season. James Vince is set to lead the Braves under the mentorship of head coach Stephen Fleming. T he squad has the likes of Devon Conway, Tim David and Finn Allen and all three names are expected to put up a great show for their team in the tournament.
