“I get it from people who beat women’s cricket. What is happening is unstoppable – girls who play club and school cricket want more, more, more and more in the evenings to provide for them,” says Sky. Sports ’Nasir Hussein starts after The Hundred with an oval thriller

Kate Cross loved being part of the “history” after the thrilling performance of the movie “Hundred,” which she hopes will inspire young people to cricket.
Cross’ Manchester Originals side started the unbeaten nail polish in the Kia Oval as a hundred with a women’s game in front of an enthusiastic crowd.
“What a night! I think we could have demanded the best opening game,” said Captain Origins, whose three wickets came in unsuccessful as the undefeated came with a two-pointer thanks to an unbeaten 136 56 from captain Dane van Nyerk.
“It was a great cricket match that needed a tournament to start. I was disappointed with the victory, but I told the girls earlier that we are making history. The result didn’t matter.”
“We didn’t know what to expect from people, but I have never played in international cricket, in Big Bang or anywhere in front of such people.
“It’s amazing and I hope it inspires someone to pick up a cricket bat and play with their brothers and sisters and it’s an amazing sport. To create this is to give the ECB a hat.”
Sky Sports’ Nasser Hussein says women’s cricket enjoys an “unstoppable” rise and feels that the high octane game between the undefeated and the real will remain so that hundreds remain strong.
“I’m sick of those who beat women’s cricket,” the former England captain said.

“We’ve just seen India play in England in a fantastic series, we just saw the quality of women’s cricket in it. [Invincibles vs Originals].
“What’s going on is unstoppable – the girls who play club and school cricket are more, more, more and more in the evenings wanting to provide them with something more.
“You have to ask yourself after each of these games – are those who have spent their money to come here, welcome to come and do they want to come back?
“All we do at Sky Sports is just eggs. The avatars look great, but that’s just the construction of it. The only thing that counts is 200 balls in the middle.”
“We could have put on the biggest show on earth, but if the cricket was rubbish, no one would come back. I think everyone who came enjoyed the game and wanted to come back and have more of it.”
More action from the Hundred will take place at 6 a.m. on Sky Sports on Thursday as a team of Oval Invincibles, including Jason Roy at Manchester Originals Jos Buttler.
