The Hundred 2022 tournament is now a few days underway in the men’s tournament with Southern Brave kickstarting their title defence with a comfortable win over Welsh Fire.
Last year saw the women’s tournament double-header each match, however this year they have had to wait to begin their competition due to the Commonwealth Games.
For the first time, there was a T20 women’s cricket competition at this year’s Birmingham Commonwealth Games 2022 with Australia winning the title and England coming in fourth, losing to New Zealand in the bronze medal match.
Now the international stars can return to their The Hundred franchises as they prepare for another year of fireworks as the explosive competition returns.
With only a few days to go before the Oval Invincibles begin their title defence, here is all you need to know about the women’s tournament...
When are The Hundred fixtures?
The women will begin their matches on Thursday 11 August 2022 and conclude with the final on Saturday 3 September 2022.

Players to watch in 2022
Issy Wong is fast becoming a key player in the England squad after a strong start to the summer. She burst onto the scene last year and has now gone on to make her international debut at all three formats of the game.
Jemimah Rodrigues and Alyssa Healy will both form part of the Northern Superchargers batting lineup. Rodrigues had a stellar Hundred summer last year, ending the season as the second highest runscorer in the women’s tournament.
Healy recently formed part of the Australian squad that one both the T20 World Cup earlier this year as well as the Commonwealth Games gold, contributing significantly in both tournaments.
Sophia Dunkley, Anya Shrubsole and Lauren Bell will all return to the Southern Brave this year. Dunkley is one of the most consistent features in the England batting line-up as well as being one of last year’s best success stories at this tournament.
