The teams will face each other in a round-robin setting and the matches will take place across 8 venues. There are many changes in the squads of all the teams for The Hundred 2023 season. You can check all the squads below.
According to our analysis of all the teams, we have picked Trent Rockets to win the Hundred 2023 season and retain their title.
Trent Rockets have a balanced squad with the strong batting line-up and a well-equipped bowling attack which makes them a strong contender to lift the Hundred Men’s title this year. They are the favourites for this season and they will build on their confidence from the win last year.
The batting line-up consists of Joe Root, Dawid Malan, Alex Hales, Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Colin Munro. This a destructive batting order as they are capable of scoring big runs and facing any strong bowling attack.
Coming to the bowling department, Pakistan spinner Imad Wasim will come in as a replacement for Rashid Khan who pulled out of the tournament. Wasim has performed well in the various T20 leagues and will be a key spinner for the team. Then they have the pacer Luke Wood, Samit Patel and Daniel Sams. All these bowlers are experienced and skillful and can take down any batting line-up of the tournament.
