We take a look at the numbers and who performed best during The Hundred in 2021.
There were some wonderful performances throughout The Hundred, with players both going big in individual matches and remaining consistent across the competition. Let's take a look at some of the best ones.
Highest team score
An easy one to start. Southern Brave might have been defeated in the final but they put up the highest total in the Women's Competition, scoring 166 against Welsh Fire. Danni Wyatt hit 53 but Smriti Mandhana shone brightest with 78 - the pair added 107 before Fire took a wicket.
Over in the Men's Competition, Northern Superchargers put on a masterclass display of batting. In the local rivalry match with Manchester Originals at Headingley, they put up the mammoth total of 200 - the first time it happened. Superchargers hit 94 from the final 35 balls of the innings, thanks mainly to John Simpson, who scored 71.
The winning captain took this in the Women's Competition. Dane van Niekerk led from the front the whole way through the competition, hitting 56 not out in the opening match. She hit another fifty against Birmingham Phoenix and was at the centre of the Oval Invincibles triumph, with 259 runs.
Liam Livingstone belted the ball to all parts of grounds up and down the country. He topped the run charts with 348 runs, passing 50 on three occasions.
Highest individual score
The numbers on this one are the same for both the Women's Competition and the Men's Competition. There was no better way for Jemimah Rodrigues to announce herself in The Hundred than to score 92 not out in her first match. Superchargers had lost four wickets for only 19 runs at one stage but Rodrigues led them to victory chasing 131 with 15 balls left!
It was 92 not out for Liam Livingstone too. Birmingham Phoenix had qualified for the Eliminator but a win at Superchargers in their final group match would send them straight to the final. Thanks to Livingstone, the result was never in doubt. His score came from just 40 balls, his fifty had been reached in just 20 (a record for The Hundred), and Phoenix won with 26 balls to spare.
This one goes to Trent Rockets' Sammy-Jo Johnson. She hit seven sixes in the Women's Competition, shooting up this list in their final match. Four sixes opening the batting against Manchester Originals helped her eclipse the Southern Brave pair of Mandhana and Wyatt.
Another feat for Liam Livingstone? Wow. His 27 sixes put him comfortably out in front in this list. Ten of those came against Superchargers in that final group match. Not to mention his effortless 91-metre six in the Final. Watch out in the crowd!
Tash Farrant won the Women's Competition and she won this category too. Her 18 wickets were key in Oval Invincibles' success, particularly her four wickets for just ten runs in the Eliminator, which put an end to any Phoenix hopes of chasing their winning target.
A four-way split in the Men's Competition: Adam Milne, Marchant de Lange, Rashid Khan and Adil Rashid all took 12 wickets each. Great work all round.
Best bowling figures
Marizanne Kapp lit up the Women's Competition Final in some style. Defending a total of 121, she destroyed any chance Southern Brave had within the first ten balls. She took three wickets and conceded just two runs, and from that Brave never recovered. Kapp took the winning wicket too and finished with figures of four wickets for nine runs. Sublime.
Only two players took five-wicket-hauls in the Men's Competition. Imran Tahir with five for 25, including a hat-trick. And Marchant de Lange, with the best figures of five wickets for 20 runs. He was the first to do it, in Trent Rockets' first match against Southern Brave. It helped restrict Brave to only 126 and from there the result proved inevitable.
For this, we're not including keepers. If we did, then Sarah Bryce would top the list with eight. But instead, we have a four-way tie. Dani Gibson, Maia Bouchier, Alice Capsey and Grace Gibbs all took six catches each.
Again, among keepers Quinton de Kock wins this with 11 - including that frankly ridiculous grab at Lord's. His teammate Alex Davies gets the honours here, having taken seven catches.
