The Hundred 2023 is coming to an end, and the Finals of the Men's and Women's Competitions will be held at Lord's on Sunday 27 August. Check out the many reasons why you should tune in.

What are the details?

Women's Competition: Southern Brave vs Northern Superchargers - 14:15 BST start

Men's Competition: Oval Invincibles vs Manchester Originals - 18:00 BST start

Watch live on Sky Sports The Hundred (from 13:45 BST) or on BBC Two, BBC iPlayer, and the BBC Sport website (from 14:00 BST).

So why should I watch?

High-quality cricket

The Hundred is fast-paced and exciting, making it perfect for spectators of all ages. And as the Group Stage has shown, there will be plenty of big hits and wickets to keep you riveted to the action.

Fantasy points

The Hundred Fantasy Game has again been unbelievably popular, and players will be looking to bag some vital points from Sunday's Finals to finish as high up the leaderboard as possible.

The Eliminators and Finals are the only matches in Block 11. Remember, you can overhaul your squad as much as you would like ahead of each block. That means you can pack your squad full of players who are still involved in the competition!

Southern Brave Women and Oval Invincibles Men can only play one match, while the Eliminator teams could play two. Balance your squad accordingly!

Win prizes!

The Finals of The Hundred will also see some fantastic prizes on offer. The Hundred Fantasy Game will see the winners awarded a variety of prizes, including tickets for the 2024 Finals and season tickets to the team of your choice for next year.

What's great is that you don't even need to have played Fantasy before now to have a chance at the prizes! There are overall prizes, but also a Block 11-specific prize - be one of the two highest-scoring players in Block 11 and you'd win.

Our free-to-enter 20 Ball Predictor competition could see you pocketing a £1k New Balance voucher.

The Hundred Trophy at Lord's

Rudimental!

The Hundred Final will be headlined by one of the UK's most successful dance acts of the last decade - Rudimental. The Brit and MOBO award-winning group have just scored their sixth UK Top 10 entry, and first in more than five years, with Dancing Is Healing.

Rudimental are headlining at the 2023 Final!

You've followed it this far!

Throughout the course of the last few weeks, you've been keeping up to date with the competition by watching on TV, via The Hundred App, or across The Hundred's various social channels, right? Right?!

Well, having done so during the Group Stage, you'll surely want to see the culmination of the thrilling action.

There also promises to be an interesting tale, with Southern Brave's Women hoping to lift the trophy in their third Final, and Anya Shrubsole looking to end her long and illustrious career with a trophy. Northern Superchargers are in new territory, having never previously made it out of the group stage.

In the Men's Competition, Oval Invincibles narrowly missed out on the Eliminator in both 2021 and 2022 after losing their final group match. A trip direct to the Final this year gives them the chance for glory, although Manchester Originals will be looking to go one better than last year and win it all.
