Sky Sports in July: The Hundred is here!

Sky Sports in July: The Hundred is here!

  

From the 149th staging of the Open Golf Championship to an exciting, brand new domestic cricket competition, don’t miss all this

By Chris Miller, Writer

There’s an incredible month of red-hot sporting action coming your way on Sky Sports – the perfect backdrop to those long summer days, whether you’re watching at home or out in the sunshine following events on the go on the Sky Sports app.

 

The year-long delay has only made us more excited about the start of The Hundred, the biggest shake-up cricket has had in living memory – and that’s just one of the fantastic events you can watch live this summer.

 

The British Lions’ tour of South Africa continues, golf’s Open Championship returns after a year off, Lewis Hamilton tries to win the British Grand Prix for the eighth time – and of course, there’s the new football season. What do you mean, the last one only ended ten minutes ago? We still can’t get enough!

 

Hold tight, because here’s what’s coming up live on Sky Sports...

Cricket

The England and India women's cricket teams take a swing


The Hundred is here! Finally! It was meant to debut last summer, but it’s a case of better late than never for this innovative form of cricket. They’re not playing with beach balls or rubber bats – the fundamentals are the same – but the format is breaking new ground by having ten overs of ten balls each and eight city-based franchises including men’s and women’s teams (each fixture is a double-header featuring both teams). Expect lots of sixes being smashed around the grounds by some of the world’s most explosive batters – and the bowlers will have some tricks up their sleeves too… 

 

The competition starts on Wednesday 21 July with Oval Invincibles v Manchester Originals, when you’ll be able to see England’s Jos Buttler, Fran Wilson, Rory Burns, Kate Cross, Jason Roy, Sam Curran and Sophie Ecclestone in action among many other top-class stars from around the world.

Rugby Union

The Lions rugby team during a practice match


The Lions’ summer didn’t get off to the best start when captain Alun Wyn Jones was ruled out after being injured in the final warm-up match before leaving for South Africa – but a crushing win in the first tour match was a huge positive. The Springboks are still formidable opponents but with Wales wing Josh Adams in searing form and the all-England second row of Courtney Lawes and Maro Itoje looking supremely powerful, plus canny coach Warren Gatland calling the shots, they’ll go into the Test series high on confidence.

Formula One

F1 cars racing


With Max Verstappen 32 points ahead, no less a figure than former champion driver Damon Hill suggested Lewis Hamilton should write off this season and look to 2022 to register his next world title – but the Mercedes man will have other ideas. This is Silverstone, Hamilton’s backyard, where he has won a record seven times including an utterly dominant display last year. If he can put in a similar performance on 18 July, Verstappen might begin to wobble…

 

Look out too for the new Sprint qualifying, which will see the drivers line up for a quickfire 100km race on Saturday evening to decide the starting grid for the GP proper (and there are championship points to be won).

Sky Sports’ unrivalled coverage of the Super League XXVI season continues in August with a huge clash between two title-chasing teams in Hull FC and St Helens, with England scrum-half Marc Sneyd in outstanding form for Hull FC, before Hull KR and their free-scoring winger Ryan Hall head to struggling Leigh. And the final match in Australia’s always-spiky State of Origin series is a must-watch for league fans too.

Golf

Taking a swing in the US Open


This year should have seen the 150th Open Championship but, for the first time since the Second World War, the event was cancelled in 2020. But the Open is back this year, taking place at Royal St George's in Kent, and Spain’s Jon Rahm will be gunning to add the Claret Jug to the US Open title he won in June. England’s Tommy Fleetwood – second at the last Open in 2019 – and Justin Rose will be confident on home territory, with the US heavyweights Dustin Johnson and Bryson DeChambeau also among the favourites. You can follow every drive, every putt and every disappointing shank into the long grass on Sky Sports.

Football

Football clubs Rangers and Livingston square off


A mere 20 days after the Euro 2020 final [ADD FOOTBALL COMING HOME JOKE AS APPROPRIATE], it’s time for – yes – the new season! Champions Rangers kick off the Scottish Premiership season against Livingston on 31 July, with Steven Gerrard’s men aiming to continue the dominance they displayed in going unbeaten last season with the help of new signings John Lundstram and the superbly named Fashion Sakala.

 

The next weekend it’s the turn of the EFL, with five live games across the weekend including relegated West Brom’s visit to Scott Parker’s Bournemouth in the Championship, followed mid-week by some choice Carabao Cup first-round matches. And on 13 August comes the Premier League curtain-raiser, as new boys Brentford aim to make their mark against Arsenal.
