2021 | Oval Invincibles
The men’s and women’s Hundred tournaments took place adjacently in the inaugural season. Oval Invincibles and Southern Brave clashed in the inaugural final at the iconic Lord’s Stadium.
After being asked to bat first, the Invincibles posted a fighting 121 in 100 balls. While chasing the target, the Brave found themselves on 2 runs for 3 wickets as their top 3 batters went on ducks.
That early setback completely threw them out of the match, as they were skittled for 73 runs. The 48-run win helped the Oval Invincibles win the inaugural Women’s Hundred Competition.

The second season again put the Invincibles and Brave against each other in the final. But the result was similar to that of the previous season’s final, with Invincibles emerging as the winners.
This time, the Southern Brave decided to bat first and went on to post 101 runs on the scoreboard. In response, the Invincibles had a bumpy start as they lost their openers cheaply.
However, Alice Capsey and Marizanne Kapp steadied their ship, helping the team to go over the ropes. With that, the Oval Invincibles got their hands on the trophy in a row.

The Southern Brave made it to their third successive final in the 2023 season. Thankfully, they didn’t face off against the Oval Invincibles, putting their bad luck behind them to win their maiden title.
