The England & Wales Cricket Board have confirmed that their new 100-balls a side competition is set to launch in 2020.

The format will be made up of ten 10-ball overs, which can be bowled by one or two bowlers, in clutches of either five or 10 consecutive balls.

"The strategy we have created will give the whole game clear priorities," said ECB chief executive Tom Harrison.

"The game has made huge progress this year, through collaboration, constructive debate and a volume of detailed discussion.

The full strategy for 2020-24 will be unveiled in January 2019, and is expected to include a revamp of cricket at Minor Counties level.
