  20 facts you might not know about 'The Silence of the Lambs' “The Silence of the Lambs” is as unsettling a movie as you will find but it was also a critical darling that spawned multiple sequels and TV shows. As grim and scary as the film can be, it is still a movie, made by actors and producers. That means there are facts about the film and its production we can relay to you. Maybe read them with the lights on.

The second edition of The Hundred is almost upon us, with men's defending champions the Southern Brave beginning their title defence on Wednesday night (August 3) against Welsh Fire in Southampton.

The Fire finished seventh in the group stages last year and Gary Kirsten's side will be bidding to better that performance this time out, while reigning champions in the women's event - the Oval Invincibles - will return to defend their title.

With many of the women's players currently in the Commonwealth Games, the women's competition starts on August 11. That means women's and men's matches will be played on the same day, in the same location, one after the other from that date.

What exactly is The Hundred?

The Hundred tournament has been created to showcase a simpler and faster form of cricket, with the hope of attracting new and diverse audiences to the sport. Each team bats for 100 balls in a match, and the team which scores the most runs wins.

The top finisher in the group stage will progress to the final on Saturday, 3 September at Lord's, while the teams which finish second and third meet in the eliminators round on September 2 for a place in the final.

What teams are playing in the tournament?

The teams taking part are: Birmingham Phoenix, London Spirit, Manchester Originals, Northern Superchargers, Oval Invincibles, Southern Brave, Trent Rockets and Welsh Fire. Each side has a men's and women's team of the same name.

Moeen Ali fears ODI cricket could disappear in just 'a couple of years

  Moeen Ali fears ODI cricket could disappear in just 'a couple of years Moeen Ali has warned that one-day international cricket could die 'in a couple of years' if nothing is done to ease the sport's imbalanced fixture list suggesting that others could leave the gameIn a scathing indictment of the game’s governance, Moeen suggested others would follow Ben Stokes’s recent decision to quit the 50-over format — because the current model is unsustainable.

The field is set to be even more competitive than last year's inaugural tournament, when a number of big-name overseas players had to pull out due to Covid. England stars including Joe Root, Jos Buttler, Nat Sciver and Heather Knight will be involved, while West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard and Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell have linked up with London Spirit in the men's competition, with West Indies superstar Andre Russell turning out for Manchester Originals. In the women's competition, many of Australia's all-conquering World Cup winners are taking part this year, plus the best of the rest.

Ben Stokes and Jonny Bairstow have withdrawn from the tournament to rest before the international Test series against South Africa, starting on August 17.

Is The Hundred being shown on TV?

Yes. BBC and Sky Sports will be broadcasting every game live between them. As for free-to-air, BBC will be showing 18 matches live on BBC TV and iPlayer (10 men's and eight women's) including both finals. Every single match will be available on Sky. Around 16.1 million fans tuned in across the span of last year's tournament.

What are The Hundred rules?

The Hundred is cricket, but not as you’ve seen it before. Each team’s batting innings will last 100 balls and whoever scores the most runs wins the match.

But rather than a bowler delivering a traditional six-ball over, the fielding side will change ends after 10 balls. Each bowler can deliver either five or 10 consecutive deliveries. The captain of each team will decide on that. Each bowler can deliver a maximum of 20 balls per game.

The Hundred will be played at a frenetic, quick tempo and each match will last around two and a half hours. Both bowling sides get a strategic timeout of up to two-and-a-half minutes and the coach can discuss tactics with their players mid-game.

Each batting team will have a 25-ball powerplay, during which only two fielders from the bowling side will be allowed outside the 30-yard inner circle.

Who won The Hundred in 2021?

In the men's competition, Southern Brave were the dominant side last year and were crowned champions ahead of runners-up Birmingham Phoenix. The Brave were also the best side for much of last year's women's competition, but they slipped up in the final against Oval Invincibles.
