Sky Sports The Hundred cricket talent line-up

Sky Sports has revealed the on-screen talent line-up that will front new domestic cricket competition, The Hundred.

The regular cricket presenting and commentary group will continue on the The Hundred, including Nasser Hussain, Ebony Rainford-Brent, Rob Key, Ian Ward, David Lloyd, Nick Knight, Mike Atherton and Mark Butcher in the broadcasts.

However, ahead of the debut season of the competition, they will also be joined by Dinesh Karthik, Stuart Broad, Kevin Pietersen, Tammy Beaumont, Daren Sammy, Mel Jones, Wasim Akram, Lydia Greenway and Kumar Sangakkara alongside presenters Andrew Flintoff, Kass Naidoo, Zainab Abbas and Jacqueline Shepherd.

All 68 games will live on a dedicated Sky Sports The Hundred channel, as well as on Sky Sports Mix - meaning Sky subscribers without the sport package will also be able to access them. All women’s matches and a ‘significant number’ of men’s will also be streamed on Sky Cricket’s YouTube channel.

The Hundred is set to get underway on 21 July, becoming the first major UK team sporting competition in history to launch with a standalone women’s fixture. After the opening two games, the women’s and men’s teams will play back-to-back on the same day, at the same venues.

Director of Sky Sports Cricket, Bryan Henderson, said: “We are so excited to help launch this fantastic new tournament this summer. It’s going to be an incredible standard of cricket played at some of the best grounds in the world and everyone’s invited.

“Hopefully the competition will inspire many girls and boys to pick up a bat and ball. We’ve put together an amazing line up of presenters and commentators; there’s a completely fresh graphics look and some exciting new broadcast technology. We very much hope you enjoy the coverage.”
