It's all or nothing

The group stage has just one more round of matches to go in both the men's and women's tournament. And the sparks are about to fly. Here are five things to look out for in the next week.

Tension

The groups in both the men's and women's tournament are so close, so a nail-biting finale is in prospect. Only the Southern Brave Women have so far secured themselves a place in the final at Lords. So expect a nail-biting round of matches as the action gets too hot to handle.

Sixes 

Some of the power-hitting in the Hundred has been truly extraordinary and that's not about to stop now. Liam Livingstone, Rachel Priest, Will Smeed, Danni Wyatt, Samit Patel and Jason Roy are just some of the players who have been smashing the ball prodigious distances in The Hundred so far. So keep an eye out for more power hitting. Particularly if you're in the crowd!

A party atmosphere

The Hundred is a cricket party like no other - and everyone's invited. Even amid the nail-biting in the stands, there'll be plenty of singing, dancing and celebrating in the stands. From young and old!

More theatrics 

If there's one thing the fun-filled Hundred hasn't been short of, it's dramatic celebrations. Whether it's Tabraiz Shamsi having a one-to-one with his cricket boot, Matt Parkinson tearing around Old Trafford like a kid who has had too much sugar at a party, or Imran Tahir giving Usain Bolt a run for his money on the Edgbaston outfield, the party mood off the pitch has been reflected on it too. We can't wait to see what they've got in store for us again this week.

Stumpings galore 

The Hundred has provided us with plenty of drama in front and behind the stumps - and we've seen some wicked work from the keepers in both the men's and women's tournament. At the business end of the tournament, the keepers could be the difference between a team making it to the eliminator or tumbling out of the top three.
