On Thursday 25th the two sides then head to Southern Brave and the Ageas Bowl in Southampton before wrapping up against the Welsh Fire in Nottingham on August 29th.

Games will be broadcast live on Sky Sports and the BBC throughout the competition after more than 16 million tuned in to watch The Hundred in 2021.

Nat Sciver, 2021 Trent Rockets Women’s captain, said: “We’re so excited for the second year of The Hundred. Last summer was an amazing experience, we had an amazing time on the pitch and we introduced so many new fans to the women’s game.

“Having that kind of support meant so much to all of us and you just can’t beat the energy that comes with it. With the Commonwealth Games, England series and the return of The Hundred, it’s going to be a special summer.”

Sanjay Patel, Managing Director for The Hundred, said: “The Hundred helped grow the game last year. With more than 500,000 tickets sold and issued and 16 million watching on TV – with half of them being new to cricket – we saw a new audience enjoying the game for the first time.

“We can’t wait to build on that this year, bringing world class cricket and an incredible family day out to fans across England and Wales.”

Rosters for The Hundred will be finalised over the coming months.
