The inaugural edition of the ‘Hundred’ has been in the spotlight ever since it has been announced. The ECB brought a new concept of a 100 ball innings and is continuously trying to make the game more entertaining. After adding several new rules, the ECB has now decided that all matches of the ‘Hundred’ will have live music concerts to add to the glamour of the league.
The development was confirmed in a report published in ‘The Mirror’. Brummie rapper Lady Sanity is looking forward to setting the stage on fire when the tournament gets underway.
“I’m excited to finally be on stage. Especially in Birmingham. I can’t wait to get back to live audiences,” Sanity said.

The England Cricket Board has tied up with BBC Music to organize live music events during the games. Several top-class musicians including, The Orielles, Jerub, Lady Sanity, Oscar Welsh and Coach Party are ready to make the fans dance to their beats.
The decision comes as a huge respite to the artists who have suffered a lot during the pandemic.
“It’s been far too long since we were on stage,” The Orielles told the publication.
The ‘Hundred’, that gets underway from July 22, will see eight teams, namely Manchester Originals, Birmingham Phoenix, Northern Superchargers, London Spirit, Oval Invincibles, Trent Rockets, Southern Brave and Welsh Fire battling each other in a round-robin format.
Several international superstars have signed up for the league. However, it is reported that many players may opt-out of the tournament due to their international commitments and quarantine restrictions.
