The Women's Hundred 2020 will mirror the men's edition and run parallely to it. As opposed to 34 games in the men's version, The Women's Hundred has a total of 30 games, with each team playing seven games each in the group stage.

The England Cricket Board (ECB) has announced that the men's and women's winners in the inaugural season of The Hundred will receive equal prize money. The total prize fund of USD 7,69,000 will be divided 50/50 between both men's and women's teams.

Although the outbreak of the Novel Coronavirus has cast some uncertainty over the schedule, in it's original state, the league is slated to begin on July 22, with the encounter between Birmingham Phoenix and Manchester Originals at New Road in Worcester.

  The team finishing first on the points table after the group games will qualify directly to the final, and will compete against the winner of the semi-final played between the second and the third ranked teams. Both these games will be held on the finals day on August 14, 2020.

The Women's Hundred 2020 will also feature eight teams - Oval Invincibles, Welsh Fire, Birmingham Phoenix, London Spirit, Manchester Originals, Northern Superchargers, Southern Brave and Trent Rockets.

The 100-ball per innings format will see a change of ends after every ten balls and bowlers can deliver either five or ten consecutive balls. Each bowler can deliver a maximum of 20 balls per game and each bowling side gets a strategic timeout of up to two and a half minutes. The Hundred will have a 25-ball powerplay for each team and two fielders will be allowed outside the 30-yard circle during the field restrictions.

While most English players will obviously feature in the tournament, the big-ticket overseas signings include Mignon du Preez, Lizelle Lee, Alyssa Healy, Suzie Bates, Meg Lanning, Beth Mooney, Nicola Carey, Marizanne Kapp, Sophie Molineux, Jess Jonassen, Sophie Devine, Ashleigh Gardner, Deandra Dottin, Chloe Tyron, Dane van Niekerk and Stafanie Taylor.
