The Hundred Empty The Hundred

Post by Good Golly I'm Olly on Tue 01 Oct 2019, 6:53 pm

England's World Cup-winning captain Eoin Morgan, West Indies batsman Chris Gayle and Australia's Steve Smith have made themselves available for The Hundred player draft on 20 October.

The inaugural 100-ball competition, which is comprised of eight city-based teams, takes place next summer from 17 July-16 August.

Other big names to have stated their interest include Afghanistan spinner Rashid Khan, Australia opener David Warner and former Pakistan all-rounder Shahid Afridi.

England's contracted Test players such as Joe Root, Ben Stokes and Jofra Archer are not on the list because they will be part of an initial draft for England's red-ball cricketers on Thursday.

In that mini draft, teams will select up to three players, with the Leeds-based side, for instance, having to choose between Root, Stokes and Jonny Bairstow as their first pick.

They will also have the opportunity to select local icons. The eight teams will be based in London (two teams), Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Nottingham, Cardiff and Southampton.

The main draft will be held later this month and among the other international cricketers to have made themselves available for the competition are Shakib Al Hasan, Moeen Ali, Babar Azam, Tom Curran, Quinton de Kock, Faf du Plessis, Aaron Finch, Lasith Malinga, Kieron Pollard, Kagiso Rabada, Jason Roy, Mitchell Starc and Kane Williamson.

Players are able to set a reserve price for their services, with each team having two spaces in their squad in each of the following pay brackets: £125,000, £100,000, £75,000, £60,000, £50,000, £40,000 and £30,000.

Taken from the BBC Sport draft. I know that there isn't a lot of fans of it on here...but the actual cricket itself and standard of it will be quite high I think. Certainly is attracting some big names

I am intrigued as to who Leeds will take as their guaranteed icon:

Joe Root - England Captain but least experienced in this format
Ben Stokes - Perhaps the most recognisable player in English Cricket and a genuine all rounder, but not a Yorkie. 
Johnny Bairstow - Successful World Cup and IPL this year. Currently out of the test line up so may be available for longer.

I would have thought Stokes. Trying to think who the welsh fires have to pick from, compared to that embarrassment of riches.

Cardiff pick from anyone not taken up by their own region, so could have any of the spare Leeds players

Question though does Bairstow still get included or was it based on the previous red ball contracts?

Hi goose - I'm sure Bairstow is included as he still has a red ball contract. He was only awarded it the other week even though he was then binned for England's winter tour.

I predict the following:

Birmingham - Woakes
Leeds - Stokes
Manchester - Buttler
Nottingham - Broad
Oval London - Curran
Southampton - Archer

which will leave Cardiff and London Lord a choice of Bairstow, Root, Anderson and Burns.

I expect Root and Bairstow to get picked, and then Anderson and Burns will end up at Manchester and Oval London

Not very happy seeing Burns involved either, this kind of rubbish tends to have an adverse effect on players who aren't naturally fast scorers.

England have two Tests vs Pakistan on during the 100 as far as I can tell, so i’d surprised if any of the red ball guys play much at all?

Just read the article! They only play the beginning, even so, I can’t see Burns being in the best 11 players.

The 8 red ball contracted players picked up are free to the franchise, do not count against budget or player application and are only available for the first couple of games and the finals. There is no obligation to play them.

The other two selected per franchise are primarily white ball specialists unlikely to be called up to the test team (Ali one of the possible exceptions).

Think its a bit harsh.

I don't think we need another format, and would have preferred the Blast replaced by a franchise based T20.

But as its here, I hope it is successful and achieves its aims of appealing to youngsters and families, getting them involved in cricket.

I will definitely be watching and supporting the Welsh Fires as my local team

I don't think the centrally contracted players decide. Broad and Anderson given mentoring roles at Trent Rockets and Manchester Originals. Strange as Broad is more likely to have success at The Hundred rather than Burns. Just had a look at Burns' stats and was very surprised, last match in July 2019 batting at 8, 47* (26) s/r 180.76.

Are all the centrally contracted players getting £30,000 for The Hundred and are they part of the squad of 15?

Their pay is part of the red ball contract, they do not count in the 15 players and they do not count against the salary cap.

England management will have decided that Anderson and Broad should not play. Burns unlikely to really, but may well be used in the marketing for "London Spirit"

Thanks.
Don't know why they didn't select the 12 contracted white ball players rather than pick from 10 red ball players. Also chose 2 Icon players, which one is an overseas player. Couldn't they have waited for the proper draft? There is a 3rd draft after the T20 with teams able to pick 2 wildcards. Will be watching that with interest but won't be watching The Hundred with it's time-outs etc.  Rolling Eyes

Because the red ball players are the ones likely to miss much of the competition due to the Pakistan series. Think the Aussie ODIs are done and dusted by the time it starts

Hi Jetty - yep, contracted white ball players seem far more suitable for The Hundred. Burns is often left out of the Surrey side for T20s.

I suspect the various drafts are seen by the ECB as all part of building the suspense for this new tournament.

Yeah, the red ball players have limited availability while the white ball ones will be fully available barring a test call up. Should also be noted that the Red Ball Contract is worth more, so less need to look to reward them any further financially. The white ball contracted players can now get some extra money.

It all ties back to what Vaughn was saying. They need to ensure that red ball specialists can earn enough money to make it worth them pursuing that career. Even just pushing the idea of "local heroes" being tests stars is a way of attempting to protect the idea that Tests are the prime format, whilst also pushing to the public that this tournament has the best players in the world. 

The format of the cricket itself is pretty poorly thought out and somewhat redundant in terms of essentially being a rain affected T20. But it does fill a gap in English cricket that was left by the botched Blast, just how popular that is show theres an appetite for silly cricket. Add in the top names form around the world and the make sure theres more participation from the top England stars and the talent concentrated into a smaller number of franchises and you get something that exposes players to the level of intensity they have to go to IPL and BBL for. The Blast like the rest of county cricket really isn't a premier competition, this could be. 

Really this is more like what the Blast should have been. Maybe in the future they will be able to restructure that to replace the silly rules that exist solely to differentiate between the two competitions and try not to devalue those games too much. 

For me the aim should be to get all domestic cricket played in a smaller number of top tier pro teams (franchises), concentrate the top talent, and attract only big name overseas talents not an endless stream of semi retired players or medicore squad fillers. Playing against the best will drive standards up for Englands elite players. As it is the county game is getting weaker year on year. 

Not sure Im that interested in it as a competition, but Im starting to see the value in it and that there has been some thought in how they can use it to support England in all formats.

It won't benefit England in traditional formats at all IMO.

It's akin to making the best Premier League players take part in a 6 a side competition outside of their current clubs, it would be fun to watch, it would attract more casual fans, but it would serve no long term purpose for the players!

Imagine if noone watched the premier league but Indian 5 a side was the richest competition in world sport.

Theres one actual test specialist playing in this competition (Burns) and only for a short period.

You're right it wont improve the players as test players but it will increase the chances of them choosing not to retire from tests early, and younger players to chase red ball contracts by looking to develope test skills as well as white ball ines.

Again the form of cricket here isn't the point, it's that they stuffed up the Blast and are looking for something to fill the space IPL and BBl sit in. That will benefit white ball play, the weirdness with the contracts rewards those who play tests.

It's not perfect but theyve tried to do something about the biggest threat all these short format competitions and the money bring, that people will just quit playing tests and counties wont be able afford to employ first class specialists.

Getting competitions with the best players in the world condensed into a small number of teams will drive up quality across the board. That's not just about drawing in crowds it's also about raising the bar. The CC desperately needs a shot like this, but doesn't generate the money to fund it on it's own.

The domestic game in this country has been in decl9ne for a long time. The ECB is running a decade behind in the piecemeal changes it's making, but at least they are doing something.

With hindsight that is easy to see. However it is hard to see what they would have done differently. Initially BCCI had no interest in T20 - hence why the ICL was set up. They send a weakened team to the firt World T20, but India win it and suddenley the people and the board care. IPL is formed with money provided just not available for a minor sport in the UK. From then ECB were always on the back foot and made a series of poor decisions - but always because they were reacting and did not want to mess up the test summer here.

Youre missing out the Stanford saga, but yeah its very much a bunch of circumstances where being the pioneers of T20 didn't end in making the best of it. The county system also stands in the way of restructuring the top tier domestic game properly (all formats|) to focus on elite player development.

The 100 is the product of trying to make the best of a mad situation. Cricket itself has come second, but as with T20 its quite possible that in 10 years time all but a few stuffies will be watching it. Hands up Im amongst those who thought T20 was dumb when it started, and boggled at the 100 when it was first floated (Im still amazed how quickly its become a real thing).

Theres a lot more people queueing up to knock the 100 than queue up to watch a county champs game.

Thing is, if you have a job that you have to attend Monday to Friday, County Cricket is not the sport for you. One Day games if you have a whole day are fine, T20's and The Hundred fit into people's busy schedules.

I don't think the problem is necessarily the County Championship, it's just not feasible for people to attend games when they're predominantly weekdays. Maybe if they had more Pink Ball, Day/Night CC games it would get more in.

To be fair, you don't have a local team in any other form of first class cricket either Wink

Markey...numbers in county cricket haven't gone down much since the mid 80s. It's never been popular in the short format era, the gradual shift away from weekends and prime summer windows has come about because reduced overs games were getting better crowds not the other way round.

But a more condesed shorter elite first class competition has a better chance of being able to command some prime slots that the CC does. Which is one of the arguments I advanced earlier in favour of going down a regional franchise route for all forms not just the rather forced 100 concept.

Tiger - what's the position for English county players and the Hundred? Are they all automatically put forward or do they have to sign up for possible selection? If the latter, has that happened yet and, if so, do we know who they are? Thanks.

EDIT: just noticed the very end of your last post. That probably answers my queries although any further clarification / details would still be handy, cheers.

Shows what the players have a positive opinion on it. Or at least the amount they can earn from it.
Its quite exciting to see players form afar afield as "other" and "none" putting themselves forward. 

My concern is that there seems to be a focus on "big name" players who are a bit past it (Gayle, Afridi) over the actual best players in the world. Even Smith shouldnt be in the top list based on his T20 credentials, he may be the stand out test batsman in recent decades but his stats drop off considerably when you look at shorter forms. 
These might be the names to sell headlines to cricket muggles, but arent all the ones to ensure the competition is as strong as possible. Too much focus on commercial success at the expense of quality? I was willing to accept the daft nature of 100 ball cricket but trying to pretend Shahid Afridi is still relevant just to get some second generation British-pakistanis interested is not great.

Edit - also SAMIT PATEL top price domestic? Who in heckins set these lists?

The players themselves set the minimum. Not many domestic players bothered (noting that the minimum to be payed is £30k). Slightly surprised Samit put himself in teh top band.

Yeah it did drag on a little, but was pretty fascinating. I was a little disappointed with the number of Kolpak players filling domestic spots. One of the justifications for this tournament was that young English players would learn so much by training with and playing against top international stars.
