Moeen Ali backs postponement of The Hundred

Moeen Ali has endorsed postponing The Hundred this year, reasoning that the England and Wales Cricket Board’s flagship competition is too important to be diluted because of current world events. The ECB last week called a halt to all cricket until July 1 at the earliest because of coronavirus while the board will convene on Wednesday evening to discuss shelving its 100-ball competition by 12 months. A number of factors, including the prospect of overseas stars being unable or reluctant to travel, means a delay is the expected outcome and Moeen believes it a necessary measure.
