History

The announcement of the new eight-team men's and women's tournament series in 2019 was not without controversy, with the likes of Virat Kohli criticising the England and Wales Cricket Board for pursuing a shift away from Test cricket, [1] while others argued the format should have followed the established and successful Twenty20 format. The ECB however decided it needed a more unique format to draw crowds.

In August 2019 the side announced that former Australian batsman Darren Lehmann would be the men's team's first coach, while former England Women player Danielle Hazell was appointed coach of the Women's team. [2]

The inaugural Hundred draft took place in October 2019 and saw the Superchargers claim Ben Stokes as their headline men's draftee, and Lauren Winfield as the women's headliner. They are joined by England internationals Adil Rashid and David Willey for the men's team, while Linsey Smith joins Winfield in the women's side. [3]
