The Hundred returns this summer after a hugely successful inaugural season. Cricket's newest competition has joined forces with Sky Sports and the Universal Pictures' and Despicable Me film franchise characters, the 'Minions' to explain how the Hundred works.

Following the cinema release of Minions: The Rise of Gru s on Friday 1st July, and the start of the  second year of The Hundred, which kicks off at the Ageas Bowl on Wednesday 3rd August with Southern Brave v Welsh Fire, the short film helps new fans understand the competition's format. 

The Hundred  launched last summer to packed out crowds across England and Wales, exciting cricket fans new and old with its innovative mix of high energy sporting action and entertainment. This year’s competition will see the best players from around the world go head to head, along with DJs and live music at every game.

With men’s and women’s teams playing side by side, The Hundred will be taking place across eight venues throughout England and Wales. Every game will also be broadcast live on Sky Sports, as well as select live games on the BBC and extended coverage across The Hundred’s digital platforms.
