The game of cricket has undergone many evolutions from time-to-time to stay updated with the tastes and demands of the changing times. In the second half of the 20th century, test cricket gave way for One Day Internationals. Similarly, in the early years of the 21st century, the T20 format emerged as the shortest and the most entertaining format of the game. Since then, in the past 10 years, we’ve seen the birth of even shorter formats, such as the T10 and super-six formats. As these new formats keep evolving, they are supported by Roanuz Cricket API in a timely manner. However, the formats that emerged after the advent of T20 failed to garner as much attention as T20 did. In a bid to change this fate, the England and Wales Cricket Board has now come with a shorter version of the game, with many notable changes to the rules, called the Hundred. The Hundred is a professional franchise cricket tournament in which an innings consists of 100 balls. Roanuz Cricket API’s live Match APIs, Tournament APIs and Fantasy API already support The Hundred tournament. In the Hundred, which debuts in Britain on July 21, eight city-based women's and men's teams are set to compete in parallel tournaments over a five-week period every summer. The data for these two tournaments are made available through the tournament api with the keysc.season.hmc2021.19c81, which is the Hundred Men’s Competition, and c.season.hwc.56651, which is for the women's competition. International players and big names from across the world are set to take part in the competition every English summer. This year, the tournament begins on July 21. Every day schedules include both men’s and women’s matches, with double-headers happening occasionally. The first stage is planned to be of the round-robin format at the end of which the top-3 teams advance to the playoffs. The playoffs shall eventually be succeeded by the Final which is scheduled to take place on August 21, 2021. We are happy to announce that the Roanuz Cricket API has incorporated The Hundred Cricket format into our APIs on time. The new Cricket Format is now added to the formats object.
