While looking through those player stats below, check out tab racing who have some interesting odds on sporting events around the world and with the 2nd  edition of The Hundred back, there will be big crowds and big overseas names set to feature in the competition.

 

 

1. Liam Livingstone (Birmingham Phoenix)

 

Liam Livingstone showed glimpses of the damage he can do in the IPL 2021. Although his current T20I form isn't one to be boasting about but his potential as a big hitter cannot be underestimated.

Liam Livingstone was also the highest run scorer in The Hundred 2021 with 348 runs to his name in 9 matches. He played with a lot of fire and scored his runs at an astonishing strike rate of 178.46. He hit 27 sixes in the tournament. Livingstone took his team Birmingham Phoenix to the Finals of the tournament where he scored a magnificent 46 off 19 balls but his team fell short by 32 runs against a target of 169 set by Southern Brave.

Liam Livingstone is at his destructive best at the English pitches and he is certainly one player to look out for in Men's Hundred 2022.

 

2. James Vince (Southern Brave):

 

Vince has been in phenomenal form in current times. He was the leading run scorer in the recently concluded English T20 Blast, having amassed 678 runs in just 16 matches. He scored his runs in the English T20 Blast 2022 at an average of 48.42 and a strike rate of 146.12. He was one of the key figures in orchestrating Hampshire to reach the finals of the Blast, which they won by just 1 run.

James Vince has shown his power hitting potential in last year's Men's Hundred competition as well. He accumulated 229 runs in 10 matches at an average of 28.62 and a superb strike rate of 129.37. James Vince is in the form of his life and it would be no surprise if he continues his merry affairs with the bat in the upcoming Men's Hundred competition.

 

3. Harry Brook (Northern Superchargers):

Harry Brook is a fantastic middle order batter who has impressed the cricket fraternity with his performances in the PSL 2022 as well as the recently concluded English T20 Blast. He scored 436 runs in the Blast, playing for Yorkshire at an average of 39.63 and a brilliant strike rate of 163.90.  He played some match winning knocks in the competition and one we can all remember was against Derbyshire. He came in when Yorkshire were 3 wickets down for 62 and he smashed 77 off just 50 balls to take his team to a safe total. He is a bankable player who will definitely shine in the upcoming Men's Hundred competition based on his form.

Last year at the Men's Hundred competition, Harry Brook amassed 189 runs in just 5 matches at an average of 47.25 and a strike rate of 153.65. He will definitely play a key role for Northern Superchargers in the upcoming Men's Hundred competition.

 

4. Rashid Khan (Trent Rockets):

 

Rashid Khan is certainly one player people come to watch in the stadium. He needs no introduction about his abilities with the ball and he can be lethal with his variations in the middle overs.

He had a great season in last year's Men's Hundred competition, picking up 12 wickets in 9 matches at an average of 19.25 and a brilliant economy rate of 8.15.

Rashid Khan is not only a world class talent with the ball but he can also play a few unorthodox shots with the bat to boost his team's morale. He is definitely one of the players to look out for in Men's Hundred 2022.

 

5. Sunil Narine (Oval Invincibles):

 

Sunil Narine played in the English T20 Blast that concluded recently. He couldn't produce match winning performances in the tournament but his potential can never be undermined both with the ball and the bat.

Narine performed well in last year's Men's Hundred competition. He picked up 7 wickets in 8 matches at an average of 22.57 and an attractive economy rate of 7.29. He also scored 62 runs in the competition with the bat at a brilliant strike rate of 131.91. Given the duration of the games in Men's Hundred and his experience playing in England in current times, Sunil Narine can prove to be a lethal weapon for Oval Invincibles in the upcoming Men's Hundred 2022.
