Bourne CC celebrate their 2018 Jaidka Cup Final win over Ramsey.

The competition has struggled to attract numbers in recent seasons with only six clubs taking part in 2018.

Those clubs attended a recent meeting when it was agreed to launch it as ‘the Hundred’ under the same rules as the ECB’s controversial competition of the same name.

That means an innings will last 100 balls with bowlers able to bowl five or 10 balls consecutively, strategy timeouts and 25-ball batting powerplays, among other innovations.
